Our internship programs provide students with the opportunity to intern in corporate environments throughout the United States. This program offers students the chance to learn valuable skills and receive professional mentoring about corporate cultures, and get a “real world” preview of their potential employer. The internship program is also a wonderful resource for companies and organizations to sample future talent and demonstrate their commitment to diversity. All internship programs are tailored to our partner’s goals and objectives.
A scholarship program provide our outstanding students relief from the rising costs of an education. Scholarships provides companies a great resource to identify great candidates.
