The John Glenn College of Public Affairs High School Internship Program is a unique public service internship program that allows high school students in the fall term of their senior year to gain first-hand experience within organizations in the public service sector.
Glenn interns who participate in the College Credit Plus option are eligible to receive 6 semester credits hours from The Ohio State University. Incidental costs associated with the internship program may include daily travel to and from the internship site. A few internship sites offer free parking.
The John Glenn High School Internship Program evaluates student applications in a holistic manner that mirrors the competitive admission process to the Ohio State University as a freshman. High school students who wish to be considered for the program must be admitted to the Ohio State Academy at the Columbus campus and will be evaluated based on the following criteria:
If so, you might want to consider hosting one or more interns from the Glenn School’s High School Internship Program next winter.
We ask that internship sites provide the students with a supervisor, as well as weekly job duties that will allow them to have a meaningful educational experience. We also ask that internship supervisors complete a midterm and final performance evaluation of the students.
If you think that your organization would potentially be interested in hosting an unpaid high school intern this winter, or you would like more information about the program, please contact Emily Carruthers at email@example.com.
