Do I Qualify?

Operation Intern funds are targeted to businesses in five industries:

  • Energy
  • Advanced Manufacturing
  • Value-Added Agriculture
  • Tourism
  • Technology-Based Businesses

Currently Operation Intern does not fund local or state internships, nor internships in the non-profit sector; however some exceptions are being accepted.

If you are unsure if your company falls under one of the targeted industries, we encourage you to complete the Employer Application and be as thorough as possible when filling out the form. Also please read the 2017-2019 guidelines for more information.

If you believe your company does not fall under one of these targeted industries, it does not mean you cannot get funding. Operation Intern has set aside some funds for non-targeted industries; however we look for these positions to be in high-demand, high-wage, or advanced skills careers.
