The brand new Las Cruces Utilities Internship Program (LCUIP) is a competitive program that awards internships to students wishing to, or who currently are, pursuing an Associate Degree in Water Technology. The LCUIP pays for tuition and other reasonable education-related expenses, including a monthly stipend and paid on-the-job training to assist with educational and living expenses. That’s in exchange for up to 20 hours of work per week during semesters and 40 hours per week maximum during academic breaks.
In return, interns commit to working four to eight years with the City of Las Cruces (LCU) as an operator or lab technician after graduation. The intern graduates will work at LCU in the Water, Wastewater, or Regulatory Environmental Services Sections. The deadline for the Fall Term is May 30, 2018.
