U-M’s Public Service Intern Program (PSIP) celebrated its 5Oth year in 2019 and, unbelievably, the students in the 51st cohort of PSIP have experienced a program year like no other. Through it all, they have been extremely impressive, working hard on their internship searches and engaging in all components of the intern program. Like others across the country, many students had their initial plans in DC canceled. Our PSIP students persisted and applied for remote internships. We are pleased to report many successfully landed summer internships. Over 75 internships were secured by PSIPers this summer!!See a snapshot of some PSIP remote student internships at the end to learn about successes this summer.
