The City of Lake Oswego is pleased to announce that applications are being accepted for this year’s Kincaid Memorial Public Administration Internship.  The internship is a great opportunity for a graduate student in Public Administration interested in gaining experience and exposure to local government management.  The individual selected for the internship will spend approximately three months (summer) working closely with the City Manager and Assistant to the City Manager on a broad range of local government management issues including human resource management, budgeting, finance, and development, as well as the delivery of a wide range of services including utilities, library, recreation and parks, transportation and public safety. The position will be paid at the rate of $12-$14 per hour with the option of 20-40 hours per week.

This is the seventh year of this highly successful internship opportunity.  Robert A. Kincaid graduated from the University of Oregon School of Community Service and Public Affairs (CSPA) with a degree in Public Administration in 1973.  He began working for the City of Lake Oswego after graduation and rose through the ranks to become Assistant City Manager in 1985 and later Chief of Staff in 2001.  He retired in 2003 only to be hired back to manage projects.  In 2006 he passed away after a long bout with cancer.  This internship is funded by his family, friends and the City to honor his life and his 30+ years of service to Lake Oswego.
