Featured Profile: Summer 2020 Graduate Interns
This summer, thousands of summer internships across the country were cancelled due to COVID-19. Thanks to an anonymous donor, things looked a little different here in Maine. 23 graduate students pursuing advanced degrees in law, business, policy, planning, management, and public health became the inaugural cohort of the Maine Center Graduate Internship Program.
