About the WCMA Scholarship Recipient
The WCMA Scholar Internship honors exemplary graduate students who aspire to a career in local government management. At least one WCMA Internship Grant will be awarded to a community for an internship for a public administration graduate student enrolled at an accredited university. To be eligible, students must be enrolled in or accepted into a graduate program geared toward local government management. Municipalities are responsible for selecting their own intern who meets the aforementioned criteria.
In addition to the opportunity to intern with a municipality, the sponsoring municipality or county will pay for the registration and expenses for the intern to attend the WCMA professional seminar or summer conference should either of those events occur during the internship period.
