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 8-10 hours per week for the Montana Budget & Policy Center, Missoula County, the City of Missoula, the American Indian Governance & Policy Institute, the Montana Nonprofit Association, and the Montana League of Cities and Towns, 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.
