Fellowship Program

Local Government Management 
Fellowship Program


I. Overview

The purpose of the Municipal Management Association of New Hampshire (MMANH) Fellowship program is to create mutually beneficial partnerships between graduate-level 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 in order to enhance the educational aspect of the Fellowship. The town/city hosting the Fellowship is expected to provide meaningful and educational work to the student, not merely routine administrative assignments. The Fellowship should be between a semester and one half year in length.
