Internship Program

Internship Opportunities

The Las Cruces Utilities Internship Program (LCUIP) is a competitive program that awards internships to new incoming, or current, full-time students 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) after graduation. The intern graduates will work at LCU in the Water Operations and Maintenance; Wastewater Operations and Maintenance; or Utilities Environmental programs. 

The application period for the 2019 - 2020 Internship Program has closed. We encourage you to apply next year, when we will be accepting applications for  Fall 2020 - Spring 2021.
