HACU National Internship Program announces deadlines
San Antonio, TX – The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) announces its upcoming deadlines for the HACU National Internship Program. Fall 2011 internship applications are due by June 17. Additional program dates and deadlines for 2011-12 are now available.
“A few years after the founding of HACU 25 years ago, the Association knew it was vital for students to graduate with the experience of having served an internship within a career field,” said HACU President and CEO Antonio R. Flores about the program, which places undergraduate and graduate students in paid internships at corporate and federal offices located in Washington, D.C., and across the nation.
“HACU was fortunate back then, as we are today, to partner with government and corporate entities that have joined with the HACU National Internship Program to play a central role in preparing the future workforce of our nation,” Flores said.
The HACU National Internship Program has placed more than 9,000 students in internships since its inception in 1992. The internships provide talented Hispanic and other minority students with the opportunity to develop their career and professional skills and receive financial support to help motivate them through graduation.
The 2011-12 program dates and application deadlines are as follows:
Fall 2012: Aug. 23 - Dec. 8
