The University of Baltimore College of Public Affairs Rosencrantz Local Government Fellowship places the College’s best and brightest students into paid fellowship positions in Maryland counties and municipalities.   The students may or may not take the experience for credit if approved as an internship by the College program.   During fall, spring, or summer semesters, a student will be approved to work 10-15 hours in a balance with coursework. Fellows will provide assistance with special projects or other daily work of the organization that may be consistent with the goals and abilities of the student. Specific responsibilities will be dependent on the partner local government organizations’ needs. These can include special events, social media, organizations/administrative work, research and community outreach. Fellows will supplement their coursework with real world experience and achieve a greater understanding of the needs of Maryland local governments.

The description of the specific position will vary from office to office.  This job description and duties will be negotiated with the site sponsor and advertised in a call for student applicants.   For example, students may be placed in an office of a County Executive, County Administrator, Mayor, Councilmember, or one of the many departments in a local government. The applicant pool will predominantly come from one of the College’s three Schools of Public and International Affairs, Criminal Justice, or Health and Human services and represent one of 14 different undergraduate and graduate programs.

We are not currently accepting applications for the Rosencrantz Fellowship.

When positions become available, they will be posted on this page and shared with CPA students by the College of Public Affairs Dean’s Office.
