 *NOTE*This list is by no means exhaustive of all the internship opportunities available for students interested in public service in the state of Delaware. If you find a company or organization whose work seems interesting, it may be appropriate to reach out and see if they would host you to shadow, intern or work. Some offices, although they may not have a formal internship program, do hire college students over the summer but may lack the resources necessary to review high volumes of applications.
