MARLBOROUGH – Mayor Arthur Vigeant announced the City of Marlborough will continue its Public Service College Internship Program for the 10th year. This initiative was proposed by Mayor
Vigeant in 2012 and has been funded by the City Council each year.

The program was cancelled for 2020 due to the pandemic, however it came back strong in 2021 and continues this year.

“As municipal government faces a staffing shortage statewide, it is programs like these that introduce students to municipal government and how rewarding of a career it can be. The program offers students the opportunity to work in a real world, professional environment – some for the first time – which prepares them for the workforce. I am glad to have it continue,” said Mayor Arthur Vigeant.

Since its inception, the program has helped provide employment experience to over 100 area college students. The program is open to all area college students enrolled in various courses of study.

Although preference is given to Marlborough residents, all interested college students are encouraged to apply. Applications must be filled out online and can be found by clicking here.

For questions regarding the paid internship program, applicants may reach out to the Mayor’s
Office at 508-460-3770. Interns are paid the current minimum wage in the state.
