INDIANAPOLIS | Indiana INTERNnet is working with the Indiana Commission for Higher Education to grow the number of internships statewide.
Beginning this fall, for-profit employers in Indiana are eligible to apply for matching funds through the new Employment Aid Readiness Network (EARN) Indiana program.
All intern-employer matches will be made via Indiana INTERNnet, a statewide resource for internship opportunities managed by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce.
Through EARN Indiana, a revamp of the state’s work study program, students are offered state financial aid have access to resume-building and experiential, paid internships. In addition, employers receive state matching funds in exchange for hiring these students.
Employers with approved positions receive state matching funds – up to 50 percent of a student’s hourly rate, which must meet minimum wage requirements – in exchange for hiring EARN-eligible students.
