PUBLIC SERVICE SCHOLARS FAQ’s
What is the Shriver Center?
What expectations am I required to meet?
We do our best to recruit host sites from across the state though many are concentrated in the greater Annapolis/Baltimore areas (especially for GSIP and MDOT). It is the responsibility of the fellow to be able to get to and from your site placement. With most internships being hybrid, and orientation, seminars, and events occasionally held in-person fellows should expect to be needed in Central Maryland 2-3 days a week (Baltimore or Annapolis region). If accepted you will be asked to keep this in mind when selecting your host site preferences, which will indicate accessibility by public transportation in the description.
Some seminars and orientations will be held at UMBC, just outside of Baltimore. or other locations in the Central Maryland region. The campus is accessible by public transportation. If you do not own a car, it is still your responsibility to attend these seminars. Transportation to any seminars, meetings, and excursions that are held off-site will be provided from UMBC or carpools will be arranged.
