North Carolina HBCU Internship Program




The purpose of this initiative is to connect students matriculating at North Carolina’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) with this state’s largest companies. The benefit to the students is work experience that will increase their competiveness in the job market. The benefit to our businesses is access and exposure to an untapped, diverse talent pool.  Through this initiative we hope to increase the capacity of North Carolina’s HBCUs to connect their graduates to the private sector thus retaining this talent in North Carolina.
