The Ohio Export Internship Program helps businesses grow by expanding export efforts or starting an export initiative.

The Ohio Development Services Agency is accepting company applications now for summer internships. The students involved are highly motivated and take export-focused coursework at Cleveland State University, The Ohio State University and Youngstown State University. This year, about 50 students from 12 universities across the state have been selected to participate in the program.

The Development Services Agency will reimburse half the intern wages, up to $3,600. The internships will run from May 13 through August 9, 2019. The interns are continually mentored by Ohio export assistance staff.

Applications are now under review. The final deadline to apply is February 1, 2019.
