About

The Rising Stars Internship Program provides the opportunity for lower-income and first-generation college students to pursue higher education and gain real-life work experience through partnerships with local businesses and nonprofits. Students in this program are placed in paid internships with sponsor companies where they work throughout the academic year, earning funds to help offset the cost of their college education.

This model allows the Rising Stars students to graduate from a four-year, private University without incurring significant student debt while simultaneously building their professional skillsets and network. The corporate partners gain intelligent and motivated student workers poised for future employment.
