State of Wisconsin Student Diversity Internship Program

The State of Wisconsin Student Diversity Internship Program (SWSDIP) offers paid internship opportunities for students interested in exploring different careers and gaining valuable experience. This program is designed to advance career goals and skills while providing an understanding of various agencies of state government. It is one initiative we utilize in efforts to employ a diverse workforce that more accurately mirrors the diversity of the citizens we serve.

We provide professional work experience and we encourage students; especially students of color, students with disabilities, student veterans, women and non-traditional students to apply. Our goal is for the Diversity Interns to envision and pursue a future career with the State of Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
