Internship Program

The Cambridge Intern Program will connect high school and college students with local employers, providing a unique opportunity. Interns gain valuable business experience that will help them in future careers, while successful internships help businesses develop tomorrow’s leaders. Internships create lasting connections between students and the area; more than 50% of interns become full-time employees at their place of internship, according to the National Association of Colleges and Employers.

$1,000 grants available for local businesses in the 69022 zip code as an incentive for local businesses to hire an intern. Internships must pay at least the current federal minimum wage, currently $7.25 per hour for at least 240 hours. Grant funds will be paid out once internship is complete and all the appropriate documents are submitted to the Cambridge Economic Development Board. One grant per business only. Grants based on funding availability.
