The Center currently offers St. Mary’s College students three separate paid internship opportunities: the Schaefer Internship for Government Service, the Schaefer Internship in the Office of the Comptroller, and the Schaefer Legislative Internship.

These internship programs are made possible through generous donations from Terry Meyerhoff Rubenstein, Henry A. Rosenberg Jr., and friends of William Donald Schaefer. William Donald Schaefer has served his community, state and nation with distinction for more than half a century. He entered politics in 1955 as a Baltimore City Councilman and became the Mayor of Baltimore in 1971. He served as Governor of Maryland from 1987 to 1995 and Comptroller from 1999-2007.
