Eighty Four, PA – The Washington County Community Foundation is currently seeking applications from local nonprofits for internship grants ranging from $1,000 to $2,500. These grants will allow nonprofits to provide a monetary stipend to student interns who: are performing services for the non-profit; are currently enrolled in an accredited course of post‐secondary educational study; and who qualify as an intern under the applicable state and federal laws and regulations.
Internship programs offer a wide variety of benefits to both the intern and the host organization. Interns gain new experiences and skills while working in the real world. Meanwhile, organizations gain new workers who can bring in fresh ideas from their field of study and who might be developed into valuable future employees.
“We are dedicated to finding creative ways to support the diverse needs of local nonprofits and also to assisting local students in their educational pursuits,” explained Betsie Trew, WCCF President and CEO. “Internship grants enable us to fulfill both these objectives.”
A total of $6,000 will be awarded this year. Nonprofit organizations who would like to be considered for an internship grant in 2023, and who did not receive an internship grant in 2022, should submit a request via the Foundation’s grant-management portal by May 1. Requests may range from $1,000 to $2,500. Questions should be directed to the WCCF Grants Program Associate at 724-222-6330 or email@example.com.
