Putnam Accepting Applications for 2017 PILOT Program Student Internship Program
Carmel, NY – Putnam County Government will once again offer high school, college and graduate school students the opportunity to apply for paid and unpaid summer internship opportunities throughout its many departments as part of the Putnam Invests in Leaders of Tomorrow (PILOT) Program. The concept of the PILOT Program was introduced by County Executive MaryEllen Odell in 2013 and continues to be supported by the Putnam County Legislature.
“The PILOT Program is one of the best professional resources offered to Putnam County Youth,” says MaryEllen Odell, “It is a program that I take tremendous pride in and I recommend students to apply, not only to gain real-world experience, but to learn more about the county in which they live.”
Eligible participants must be Putnam County residents who are graduate, college, or high school students in their junior or senior year. Applicants must be at least 16 years of age. For college students a GPA of 3.0 or higher is recommended.
The 2017 Summer PILOT program will run from May through August, depending on student availability. Internship hours, are typically 28 hours a week, and will be coordinated with Department supervisors.
