Emerging Professionals Grant
The Augustana Emerging Professional Internship Grant is funded through the Illinois Board of Higher Education on an annual basis. Only Illinois students are eligible to receive this grant, and proof of residency must be provided. For the grant, Augustana College has partnered with many local Illinois companies, both profit and non-profit organizations.
Some interns have received monetary compensation from the organization they were working at. In the past, interns were paid an hourly wage for internships in non-profit/governmental organizations such as the American Red Cross, Child Abuse Council, MetroLINK, and Trinity Regional Health System. Intern wages are enhanced through the grant with profit organizations, such as Group O and Deere & Company.
The grant is administered by Johnna Adam, Director of Employer Relations and Internships (309-794-7338). Contact Johnna or Karen M. Petersen, Director of Business Internships (309-794-7456) for more information.
