CHAPEL HILL – Fifty students representing nine public and private institutions from across North Carolina have been named to internships through the North Carolina Governor’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities Internship Program.

“This program is absolutely crucial in helping to link talented students from our state’s historically African American institutions with Fortune 500 corporations through internships,” said UNC System President Margaret Spellings. “I congratulate all of the interns who were selected and wish them the best in their future endeavors.”

Students will participate in a two-day orientation from May 15-16, on the campus of NC Central University. Representatives from the Governor’s Office and the UNC System will also be in attendance to deliver remarks and presentations.

The purpose of the program is to connect students matriculating at North Carolina’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) with this state’s Fortune 500 companies. The internships also provide participating institutions with the opportunity to develop long term partnerships with critical industry allies. 

The interns benefit from the work experience, which helps to increase their competiveness in the job market, while businesses benefit in accessing and being exposed to an untapped, diverse talent pool. Ultimately, the initiative works to connect graduates from North Carolina’s HBCUs with the private sector, adding the long-term goal of retaining this talent in the state. The internships are paid from annual reoccurring state fund, and applicants must meet minimum academic and computing requirements to be selected to the program, which runs during June and July.  

Corporate partners include Wells Fargo, Heery, Northwestern Mutual, Coca-Cola, NC Mutual, TIAA, GP Supply Co., Lenovo, GMS Estimators, Duke Energy, Atrium Health, Xerox and AFLAC. The participating institutions are Bennett College, Saint Augustine’s University, NC Central University, NC A&T State University, Livingstone College, Shaw University, Fayetteville State University, Winston Salem State University, Elizabeth City State University and Johnson C. Smith University.
