US Dept of Transportation paid internship opportunity for students

US Department of Transportation’s paid Summer Transportation Internship Program for Diverse Groups (STIPDG), which is part of USDOT’s efforts to increase diverse representation in its workforce and inspire excitement about public service, is now open.

STIPDG is a paid opportunity for college and graduate students, running June 3-August 9, 2024. The internship includes substantive project-based work, a stipend, mentorship from federal staff, professional development programming, and paid housing and travel for students who do not reside near their assigned internship site. Interns are placed in Washington, DC and at USDOT offices around the country. The Washington Center administers this program in coordination with USDOT. There is no fee for students (or their institutions) to apply or participate. The internships are open to enrolled students in all academic areas and can include technical, research, communications, and administrative projects. Applications are due January 31, 2024.

People from groups under-represented in the federal workforce, including students of color, first-generation college students, students with disabilities, women in STEM, and LGBTQ+ students, are strongly encouraged to apply. Applicants must be US citizens. Please feel free to circulate signups for the following virtual sessions to students at your institution:

STIPDG Virtual Information Sessions (TOMORROW Oct 17; Dec 5)

STIPDG Application Tips and Support Webinars (Oct 25; Nov 14)

Students can visit the STIPDG website to learn more and apply. If STIPDG is not a fit, they can also read more about The Washington Center’s paid diversity internship programs at other federal agencies.
