Thanks to generous support from the SECU Foundation, the Carolina Center for Public Service is offering Carolina students the opportunity to apply to be a SECU Public Fellows Intern.

This program connects talented undergraduate students with local leadership in rural North Carolina communities. As an intern, you’ll benefit from meaningful professional experience with a local agency or organization, while giving back to a rural community that may be your own hometown.

Know Before You Apply

The start date for most of the 2022 summer internships will be June 1 and most will be completed by Aug. 12. The specific dates will be agreed on by the partner organization, intern and Carolina Center for Public Service.

Interns will receive training and mentoring, be enrolled in a one-hour online course and will be paid up to $4,300.
