Metropolitan State University has been awarded a three-year, $444,429 Career Ready Internship Grant from Great Lakes Higher Education Guaranty Corporation. An anticipated 335 new paid internships will be created during the 2015-2018 academic years.
This is the second time Metropolitan State has received a grant from Great Lakes for developing paid internships for its students. Last year, 117 paid internships were created with the grant.
Metropolitan State will collaborate with businesses and nonprofit organizations to provide the greatest number of current and future students with an educational opportunity they might not otherwise have. Internships will be targeted to undergraduate students studying to enter the science, technology, math, chemistry fields, those in the College of Management, and in areas of social entrepreneurship.
