Fellowship Program

Local Government Management 
Fellowship Program



The purpose of the Municipal Management Association of New Hampshire (MMANH) Fellowship program is to create mutually beneficial partnerships between university (graduate and undergraduate) students pursuing a career in local government administration and the New Hampshire towns/cities that can benefit from their services. This program will be targeted toward students specializing in public administration, public policy, political science and related disciplines. Students interested in pursuing a career in local government management, but specializing in other relevant fields such as business administration, management, human resources, public relations, etc., are also encouraged to apply.

The Fellowship program is a competitive-selection process with merit-based selection for both the prospective fellows and the hosting community. The Fellowship will allow the student to experience and participate in a broad range of municipal operations under the supervision of the Town/City Manager or Administrator. Where practical, the Fellowship should utilize the ICMA Model Internship Guidelines.  The Fellowship contemplates a 400-hour commitment (400 hours of paid work).
