INDOT seeks intern, scholarship applicants

 

 

The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) is accepting applications for Governor’s Public Service Interns through March 10 and for its engineering scholarship program through April 30.

INDOT is seeking 74 interns across its six regional districts and its headquarters in downtown Indianapolis. The Governor’s Public Service Summer Internship program offers work experience and pays $11.30 per hour. Interns will spend at least half their time this summer on a specific project that enhances college-level skills and abilities. Interns will also participate in a Speaker Series that features elected officials and state agency executives.

To be considered, candidates must be enrolled with an accredited post-secondary institution and have completed at least one year of undergraduate education. A student’s college or university may offer academic credit for the internship as well. Prospective interns are encouraged to apply to multiple positions online at www.in.gov/spd/2335.htm.

Full-time students accepted or enrolled in a qualifying civil engineering program are eligible to apply for competitive engineering scholarships valued at $3,125 per semester. Applications for the 2013-14 school year are available online at www.INDOTScholarship.in.gov and must be postmarked by April 30.

INDOT’s scholarship program leverages federal transportation funding to offer civil engineering scholarships to college students enrolled at one of Indiana’s Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) certified engineering schools. Eligible university programs include Purdue University, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, Trine University, University of Evansville, University of Notre Dame, University of Southern Indiana, and Valparaiso University.

Scholarship recipients will receive as much as $3,125 per semester for up to five years of post-secondary education, including a maximum of two years of graduate school. Scholarship funds may be applied to educational expenses such as tuition, fees, and books.

In return, recipients will work at INDOT in full-time, paid positions during their summer breaks. Upon graduation, scholarship recipients must work six months at INDOT for each academic semester they received a scholarship.

More information on the INDOT Engineer Scholarship program and an application form are available online at www.INDOTScholarship.in.gov. Applications for the 2013-2014 school year must be postmarked by April 30.

Students or parents with questions about the INDOT’s Governor’s Public Service Internship positions or the INDOT Engineering Scholarship program may contact recruitment consultant Brandi Jittjumnongk by e-mailing to jobs@indot.in.gov or by calling (812) 895-7305.
