Export Interns Help Businesses Grow
Ohio Development Services Agency
The State of Ohio wants to help businesses grow, and boost international marketing or logistics, while training the future workforce.
The Ohio Development Services Agency’s Export Internship Program places students who have completed export-focused coursework with businesses seeking to boost exports. College students from across the state can apply to take the export course at The Ohio State University Max M. Fisher College of Business, the Cleveland State University Monte Ahuja College of Business, the Youngstown State University Williamson College of Business Administration, or the University of Dayton School of Business Administration.
Participating businesses receive a 50 percent reimbursement for intern wages, up to $3,600. The application period for companies has started, and meetings with companies will be scheduled for November 2020 to February 2021. Students will be matched with companies in April 2021, and the internships run from May to August 2021.
