The Diversity & Inclusion Internship Program is intended to provide internship experiences to diverse students in technology and technology-enabled small businesses across Ohio. The Ohio Development Services Agency seeks one or more qualified intermediary organization(s) to manage the curated deployment of student internships into Ohio early stage companies. The purpose of curation is to generally enhance the quality of the internship experience for both the company and the student by engaged management of the relationship. The Ohio Third Frontier anticipates making $500,000 available for the Calendar Year 2018, which will be directly awarded to Company and Service Hosts chosen to host the interns. To maximize the number of internships deployed, the Program seeks the most cost-effective curation solution available. It is a priority of this Program to make entrepreneurial experiences available to minority (O.R.C. 184.17) student. If you are interested in participating as a Company or Service Host, please contact the Ohio Third Frontier Staff.
