Departments could include Human Resources, Executive Division (Governor's Office), Public Works, Law, and Police.

This is an unpaid internship. The enrolled fellows will intern or work with the City of Memphis for ten (10) hours or more per week for one (1) semester.

All fellows may receive college credit for their program participation if this is agreed upon with the educational agency.

Interested students should apply online at www.memphistn.gov. You must select "Career Opportunities" and follow the prompts to "Register" to proceed with the Urban Fellows application. Feel free to view the Urban Fellows video on YouTube to hear from past participants.
