RALEIGH – The N.C. Department of Transportation has extended the application deadline for the 2023 Historically Black Colleges and Universities internship and fellowship programs.
The deadline to apply for an HBCU internship or fellowship is now March 31. The previous deadline to apply for the internship and fellowship was this week. Selected applicants will start work May 30.
NCDOT’s HBCU and Minority-Serving Institution Internship Program provides hands-on experience for students attending HBCUs and MSIs.
The summer internship program is an ideal way for undergraduate students to gain work experience with the NCDOT, while learning what a career in the transportation industry can offer.
The internships also include professional development workshops on skills such as résumé building, business writing and networking.
Fellows are offered a two-year individual fellowship experience tailored to their interests, involvement and goals.
Applicants who apply to the fellows program must have graduated within the past three years with a bachelor’s degree or master’s degree from a North Carolina HBCU or MSI.
Participants work in all areas of the transportation industry. The programs also offer free trainings and certifications, travel and opportunities to network with and learn from transportation professionals.
The fellowship program helps develop a pool of qualified employees for potential permanent positions within NCDOT and the transportation industry.
