HACU National Internship Program seeks applicants

The Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) is currently accepting applications for the HACU National Internship Program. To be considered for the summer session (June 4-Aug. 14), undergraduate and graduate students must apply online by Feb. 26, 2010.

The paid internship consists of a ten week assignment in Washington, D.C., or at a field location elsewhere in the U.S. with a federal agency or private corporation.

“During these tough economic times, internship opportunities for students are incredibly valuable,” said HACU President and CEO Antonio Flores. “The HACU National Internship Program provides students a chance to earn an income and also make professional connections for future corporate or federal employment.”

More than 8,000 students have participated in internships since the inception of the program.
