Baucus Leaders MT
The Baucus Leaders MT program is rooted in Max Baucus’ home state, which he represented for 36 years as a U.S. senator. Every summer we place exceptional undergraduate and graduate students in internships at Montana-based governmental and nonprofit offices for project-based learning experiences.
Since 2021, our Baucus Leaders MT have worked for Missoula County, the City of Missoula, the University of Montana American Indian Governance Institute, the Montana Nonprofit Association, Montana League of Cities and Towns, and the Montana Legislative Research and Policy office, among others.
Project work begins on or around June 1 and ends on or around August 2. Baucus Leaders MT are given a $3,000 stipend to defray cost of living expenses during their internship.
A 3.5 or higher GPA is required, and applicants must be enrolled (online or in-person) in good academic standing in one of the following University of Montana Department of Public Administration and Policy programs:
