The SBTDC is accepting project proposals for the 2017 paid internship program for rising seniors at NC A&T, UNCG, UNCSA, and WSSU. Proposals are due by February 28th for consideration for Summer 2017.
We have the funding to sponsor 6 interns each from NC A&T, UNCG, UNCSA, and WSSU. We will have a total of 24 interns and we are looking for 24 client companies to host an intern for the summer at their facility/office. You don’t have to be a current client of the SBTDC, as long as you have been a SBTDC client at some point in the past.
The SBTDC will find, hire, and match your company with an intern for the summer. The internship is expected to run for 8 weeks during the summer and the intern will be expected to work 40 hours a week at the client company. The SBTDC will pay the interns $10/hour ($3,200 per intern for the summer). The client company pays a nominal fee in order to cover program fees. Last year, it was $920.
We are looking for client companies from any industry that have interesting projects for an intern and can use one for the whole summer. If you are interested in being a client company, please fill out the proposal by February 28th. We will be reviewing proposals on a rolling basis, so please submit them as soon as possible. Projects can come from all aspects of the business. Here is also the Learning Objective Guide that is mentioned in the proposal. Please submit completed proposals by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This year, we are asking for applications before we post the job descriptions for the interns. We are going to tailor the job descriptions to the proposals. We post the job descriptions to all rising seniors students at our campuses, not just business students. This is a good way to find interns in creative fields e.g. if you need help with social media marketing, videography, drafting, etc.
