What IS PROMISE?
PROMISE stands for PROfessional and Managerial Internships in State Employment. The PROMISE Internship program is an annual, 10-week program, it has been part of the OSU campus community since 1992. PROMISE is a developmental internship program designed to provide professional, managerial, or technical paid work experience and mentoring in state and local government agencies for Oregon State University juniors and seniors. The program’s purpose is to increase the potential pool of applicants currently under-represented in state and local government agencies.
In addition to experiences gained through the internship, the program provides robust learning opportunities via experiential presentations, meet and greets with some of OSU’s most influential community members, and unique activities that serve to simultaneously strengthen intern’s professional skill sets as well as their connections with each other.
