PCPC Internships

Be an intern at the Philadelphia City Planning Commission (PCPC)! Augment your studies, learn about big-city planning issues, and be part of a great team of dedicated professionals.

The PCPC offers several internship opportunities each fall, spring and summer. Graduate and upper-level undergraduate students assist the PCPC staff with a variety of work assignments including general research, data collection and analysis, field work, mapping, public meetings and outreach, and report preparation. In certain instances, unpaid internships for academic credit can be arranged.

Due to limited funding available, most intern positions require candidates eligible for work-study financial aid, or receive commensurate academic credit or recognition, such as a stipend, through their institution.

Work hours are flexible, but interns should commit to eight to 12 hours per week during the academic year (September to May) and 20 to 35 per week during the summer (June to August). Internship applications are accepted for three periods: for the fall and spring semesters and during the summer.
The following summer internship positions are now accepting applications.  Please click on the internship position links below for further details on the position and instructions on how to apply.
