Application Process Now Open for Plano Mayor’s Summer Internship Program
High school and senior high campuses are encouraged to share the following information about the 2021 Plano Mayor’s Summer Internship Program with current tenth and eleventh graders:
Qualifying Plano ISD sophomores and juniors can apply now through March 1 for the eighth-annual Plano Mayor’s Summer Internship Program. Presented by Capital One, the competitive “learn-and-earn” program connects Plano teens with some of the area’s top corporations and nonprofits. The eight-week paid internship program—offering remote and on-site placements, or a combination of both—runs June 7–July 30 (although some start dates are flexible). Students earn a minimum of $10 per hour working 20-40 hours per week.
Only the first 400 applications will be accepted, so students are encouraged to apply early to avoid being waitlisted. To qualify, students must complete an online application, which includes two short essays. Additionally, applicants must be a current Plano ISD sophomore or junior; have at least a cumulative 3.0 GPA and solid attendance record; be 16 years of age by June 7, 2021; be eligible to work in the United States; and be able to work the entire eight weeks of the internship from June 7-July 30 (or dates determined by the employer).
