More about this internship

The Summer Transportation Internship Program for Diverse Groups (STIPDG) provides a unique opportunity to gain valuable professional experience and skills that will complement your academic pursuits. This hands-on program is designed to mentor and cultivate tomorrow’s leaders, strengthen their understanding of the transportation industry and prepare them for future public service opportunities.

Interns are given assignments that require them to work a standard 40-hour workweek for the 10-week program for which they are compensated with a bi-weekly stipend. Undergraduate students receive a total stipend of $4,000. Graduate and Law students receive total stipends of $5,000. Standard local, state, and Federal deductions will be taken based on exemption information provided by the interns. Since the participants become employees of TWC, all bi-weekly payments will be paid via TWC’s payroll system, and not that of the Federal Government. All deposits will be made as direct-deposits to the participant’s preferred banking institution, if proper paperwork is provided.

Eligibility: 

  • Applicants must be U.S. Citizens.
  • Applicants must be currently enrolled in degree-granting programs of study at accredited U.S. institutions of higher education recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.
  • Undergraduate applicants must be juniors or seniors for the upcoming Fall Semester. Undergraduate applicants from Junior, Tribal, or Community Colleges must have completed their first year.
  • Law Applicants must be entering their second or third year of law school in the upcoming Fall Semester.
  • Applicants who are scheduled to graduate during the Spring or Summer Semesters of this academic year are not eligible for consideration for the STIPDG unless: (1) they have been accepted for graduate school enrollment; (2) they have been accepted for enrollment at an institution of higher education; or (3) their acceptance is pending. In all instances, the applicant must submit with their completed application, all required documentation (with the school’s logo) reflecting their status. There will be no exceptions.
  • Former STIPDG interns may apply but will not necessarily receive preferential consideration.
  • Applicants will be evaluated based on the “completeness” of the application and the Required Documents listed. Priority will be given to those with GPA’s of 3.0 or better (for the Major and/or Cumulative).
  • Applicants must be available and able to participate through the duration of the 10-week program including closing ceremonies.

Internship Duration: The duration of internship is 10 weeks.
