“This program throws the traditional idea of interning on its head.  I was actually told “You’re not just an intern.”  I was able to do meaningful and productive work and not just file papers and run errands.”

Greg Primrose, Towson University

Placement:  Maryland Transit Administration

“My mentor always included me in all the meetings and training classes.  He made me feel at home.  In addition, the best aspect of the program was being oriented to transportation.  This program opened another career option that I would have never considered before.”

Ashley Robertson, Bowie State University

Placement:  Maryland Transportation Authority

“The best aspect of the program was its organization and commitment to the enrichment of the interns.  From the seminars/tours to the group policy paper project, it was clear that there was an overreaching goal to enhance our general knowledge of transportation issues and MDOT.  I found this reassuring, motivating, and refreshing.”

Amanda Rosenbush, University of Maryland, Baltimore County

Placement:  Maryland State Highway Administration

“During these past eight weeks, I was given a better insight to what I might be doing in the future. I also learned a lot about MDOT and its function in the State.”

Joe Schindler, Frostburg State University

Placement: Maryland State Highway Administration

“One graduate program offered me a full-tuition scholarship with a research assistantship. The chairman of the admissions committee said the deciding factor for them was the fact that I worked as a fellows-intern at MDOT. The university was looking for young people who were interested in transportation issues, particularly elderly driving. It’s ironic that my policy paper dealt with issues related to elderly driving.”

Mark Stevens, Washington College
