County Recruitment Period for 2018 GCIP Now Open

The Georgia County Internship Program (GCIP) will be kicking off its 2018 summer grant program application period this month. GCIP helps connect college students with internship opportunities in county government. Each year, the ACCG Civic Affairs Foundation provides funding to cover the costs of up to 40 county internships in counties across the state through GCIP. To date, 365 internship opportunities in 68 counties have been provided through GCIP.

In order to apply for a grant, counties must complete and submit the grant application packet, which is being distributed via email to county clerks. All applications should include a substantive county project that provides a benefit to the county and to the intern. Prior participation does not bar applicants from participating in the upcoming program and special consideration is given to counties that have not previously participated.

If you have any questions about the application process or general questions about the GCIP, please contact Michele NeSmith at mnesmith@accg.org or at 404-522-5022.
