Fellowship & Internship Program

Fellowship and Internship Program Logo


The City of Portsmouth’s Fellowship and Internship program promotes the growth and development of our future workforce by offering internships to graduate students, undergraduate students, and high school students. Internship and fellowship positions are unique to each department and may be for pay or for academic credit. More importantly, not only do internships help bridge the gap between the academic world and the working world, these hands-on experiences also help students to put theories into practice, and offer opportunities for more personalized learning beyond the traditional classroom setting.
