Professor Dukakis spearheaded this privately funded internship program to provide students at UCLA Luskin with first-hand public service experience in government. As power shifts from Washington, D.C., to the state and local level, the need for talented public servants has never been greater. The Michael S. Dukakis Internship in Public Service provides stipends for students serving in non-partisan internships in government, with a special emphasis on California. The focus for this 10-week summer internship is on government settings rather than in non-profits or NGOs. Students who are currently interning or have completed a government internship during the academic year are also eligible if they meet the criteria below.
