North Carolina Governor’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities Internship Program

The North Carolina Governor’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities Internship Program was created to connect students matriculating at North Carolina’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) with this state’s Fortune 500 companies. The benefit to the students is work experience that will increase their competiveness in the job market. The benefit to our businesses is access and exposure to an untapped, diverse talent pool.  Through this initiative we hope to increase the capacity of North Carolina’s HBCUs to connect their graduates to the private sector thus retaining this talent in North Carolina. 

With North Carolina home to 13% of the nation’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), that state will include a total of 10 universities (five public and five private) to participate in the program.

 

PARTICIPATING INSTITUTIONS

  • Bennett College
  • Saint Augustine’s University
  • North Carolina Central University
  • North Carolina A&T State University
  • Livingstone College
  • Shaw University
  • Fayetteville State University
  • Winston Salem State University
  • Elizabeth City State University
  • Johnson C. Smith University

Internships are the most effective way for students to gain work experience before graduation. In fact, studies show that 7 out of 10 internships turn into full-time jobs. The program, funded by the state, will provide opportunities for HBCU students to participate in paid internships in North Carolina’s top companies.  These funds will cover salaries for fifty (50) students. The student’s salary will be covered by this state appropriation. Each student will be paid $15 @40hrs/week for 8 weeks. Employers may pay an additional amount on top of the $15/hr.

The UNC System will serve as the oversight agency for the program with primary responsibilities for budget oversight, compliance, assessment, and reporting.  Participating institutions will receive funds for 6-10 interns (based on the budget).  Funds are evenly distributed to the ten participating campuses.
