LINCOLN — The deadline for applications to the Nebraska Department of Economic Development’s Intern Nebraska program is April 26.

Eligible to for-profit and not-for-profit businesses that are located in Nebraska, InternNE grants can help companies offset the costs of hiring new interns, according to a press release from NDED.

InternNE grants can reimburse up to 50% of an intern’s wages, up to $5,000 per internship. Students who are currently enrolled full-time or who have recently graduated from a Nebraska institute of higher education, or who are at least juniors in high school, are considered eligible interns under the program.

“When it comes to growing Nebraska, it is mission critical that we help local companies create new internships and encourage them to do so,” said DED Director Anthony L. Goins. “Internships not only help address the skilled labor needs of our job creators, but provide an ideal opportunity to encourage young people to launch their careers and make a home here in Nebraska.”
