As a fairly new initiative, the Nevada Chapter of the American Public Works Association (APWA) will be awarding internships to deserving students in Nevada. This program will assist students in attaining their career aspirations and building a foundation of future public works leaders. There are three internship opportunities funded by APWA and Nevada employers.
