Fifty Internships Available Through NCDHHS’ HBCUs/MSIs Summer Program

3 min read

The application period is open for NCDHHS’ Historically Black College/University and Minority Serving Institutions (HBCUs/MSIs) Internship program. The HBCUs/MSIs Internship program, in coordination with the Division of Public Health, is a component of the department’s workforce development initiative that encourages college students to seek careers in public health and government. 

The program is recruiting students from HBCUs and MSIs in North Carolina to allow more equitable opportunities for internship access within NCDHHS, which supports building a strong and inclusive workforce, one of the three NCDHHS strategic priorities. The program gives interns the opportunity to learn more about what public health professionals, public administrators, social workers and policymakers do in NCDHHS.

The internships also provide a series of development opportunities that may include resume writing, group dynamics, and communication skills, among other activities. NCDHHS will pair interns with staff who are graduates of HBCUs and MSIs, to allow students to be supported and mentored by HBCU/MSI graduates.

Twenty-four internship positions require specific skills, such as two years of laboratory, journalism or communications experience, among other requirements. The remaining 26 positions have broader requirements, such as the ability to engage and interact with internal and external partners; compile, assimilate and organize printed and electronic information; knowledge of data collection, organization to create reports, charts and other materials; the ability to present ideas clearly and effectively in written and verbal formats, as well as other requirements.

All interns will be paid $20 per hour, with the exception of Job 1, which will be paid $25 per hour. The internship will run from June 5 to Aug 11. Interns will work 40 hours per week, Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Remote and hybrid options are available.

Sophomores, juniors, seniors, graduate and professional students enrolled in a four-year HBCU or MSI located in North Carolina, or enrolled in a professional degree program at an HBCU or MSI located in NC, are encouraged to complete the HBCU/MSI Summer Internship Interest Form and submit an NC State Government Application by May 12, 2023. When completing the NC State Government Application, key the job number for each internship vacancy that you are applying for in the box labeled “Job Number.” The state application should be emailed to [email protected].
