Civic Leaders Internship Program (CLIP)


The MU Office of Service-Learning is proud to offer academic credit to MU students for both government and non-profit internships. We support a wide variety of full and part-time internship opportunities during the fall, spring, and summer semesters.

All of our internships are offered on a writing intensive basis and qualified students can earn Honors credit. In addition, the Office of Service-Learning works with students to package the internship in a way that fits into their graduation plan. Students from any major or background are eligible to apply, and all students must complete our competitive application process where we screen each student to ensure they meet the academic and professional requirements for the program.
