International Internship Program Partnerships for Global Talent

Presented by:  UW-Madison, Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation

The International Internship Program (IIP) at UW-Madison has teamed up with the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) to provide SEED FUNDING to help small-and medium-sized Wisconsin companies invest in developing global talent as part of their international business initiatives.

This grant will provide up to $4,000 in matching funds to help offset costs associated with hiring an intern. IIP helps companies identify candidates, but the selection of your intern is up to you. IIP supports students with internship advising, academic coursework and logistics related to overseas assignments. Imagine the potential!

Applications for 2015 are due by October 31, 2014.
