The Public Service Commission (PSC) has selected 3,902 candidates who will be joining public service under the Public Service Internship Program (PSIP) Cohort V for a period of 12 months.. The candidates will be deployed in Ministries, State Departments, and Agencies (MDAs) supervised by trained mentors.
Following the advertisement of the internship opportunities in July 2022, the commission received over 30,000 applicants, about 7,400 were shortlisted for interviews, and 3902 selected through a competitive process to join the 5th cohort of the PSIP. This year’s PSIP cohort takes the total number of candidates who have benefitted from the program to over 15,000 since its inception in 2019.
The appointed candidates will undergo an induction program before they’re deployed to their respective working stations. Instructions on the induction dates, deployment details, and reporting dates will be communicated in the coming days.
The list of the appointed candidates is available on the Commission website. Applicants can also check the status of their applications via the PSC portal.
