MARLBOROUGH – Marlborough is bringing back an internship program for local college students.

For nearly a decade, the City of Marlborough has provided these internships to help support area students

“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,” Mayor Arthur Vigeant wrote in a recent press release. 

“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,” Vigeant continued 

Vigeant proposed the initiative in 2012. He has since secured funding for the program from the City Council throughout its existence. 

The program was canceled in 2020 due to the pandemic, but it resumed in 2021. 

The program has helped provide employment experience to over 100 area college students. It is open to all area college students regardless of area of study. Preference is given to Marlborough residents, but the city encourages all students to apply. 

Applications must be filled out online. Questions should be directed to the mayor’s office at 508-460-3770. 

Applications are due April 30.
