Mayor’s Internship Program

Providing paid opportunities for college students to learn and contribute to the City's operations.


The Mayor’s Internship Program (MIP) is a 10-week paid summer internship from June to August. Each year, 50 college students are selected by the Office of Talent & Employee Success. Then, they are assigned to one of over 40 City agencies.

Interns are paid $15 an hour and provide research, administrative, and support work. The internship requires 25 to 37.5 hours per week, depending on the department's needs. This includes weekly professional development sessions and group projects.

Each year, interns complete a group or community project. They present their findings at the closing ceremony in front of the mayor or senior leadership. Interns are also invited to take part in the My Philly Summer program with Campus Philly.




We encourage the following applicants to apply:

  • Undergraduate students (sophomores to seniors).
  • Community college students who will have completed their second year before June 2024.

MIP may consider a small number of recent graduates from the class of 2024 and graduate students.

Internships will run from June 10 through August 16. Interns will need to work the entire duration of the program except for unforeseen circumstances and emergencies.
