Deadline extended for 2014 Urban Scholars internship program applications

The City of Minneapolis extended the application deadline for its leadership development summer internship for college students interested in public service careers. Students interested in the 2014 Urban Scholars summer internship should apply online by Friday, March 14.

The Urban Scholars program seeks to help young people from diverse backgrounds build professional and leadership skills for a future in the public service sector. To be eligible, students must have completed their first year of post-secondary education prior to the beginning of the internship and be enrolled and in good standing at a two- or four-year college or university, graduate school or law school. The 12-week program is a full-time paid internship experience that runs May 27 to Aug. 15. Urban Scholars will work in City of Minneapolis departments and participate in events focused on building networks, skills and opportunities.

The Urban Scholars leadership development summer internship is one component of the Employment Equity Division of Minneapolis Civil Rights, which aims to close the employment gap in a city and metro area that suffers from one of the highest disparities between white and non-white workers in the country.
