John A. Volpe Transportation Internship Program
In 2000, U.S. Secretary of Transportation Rodney E. Slater established a transportation internship program at the Volpe National Transportation Systems Center designed to attract exceptional graduate students in the engineering, scientific, and social science disciplines to a future career in the field of transportation. Recognizing the contributions to the future direction of transportation by his predecessor, Secretary Slater named the program the John A. Volpe Transportation Internship.
This program provides a developmental internship to a graduate student on an annual basis. The selectee works side by side with leaders and experts in the transportation field on both technical and policy projects.
The one to two-year program is a vehicle for the Volpe Center to access some of the best and the brightest graduate students in the field of transportation, allowing them to gain experience and make a difference to the future of transportation while working at the Center.
