Scholarships built with our partners and awarded to deserving students are a win-win opportunity. Students get the career training they may not otherwise be able to attain, qualifying them for in-demand jobs. Partners gain exposure to qualified workers for difficult to fill positions in a cost-effective manner.
Some Extension certificate programs include a hands-on internship for students to gain work experience in local organizations. Our partner companies have found these to be useful opportunities.
Interns enter the workforce towards the end of their learning path with a defined skill set and knowledge base.
Internships serve as a trial run for both the employee and employer potentially decreasing the timeline and cost of sourcing new talent.
