Summer Youth Internship Program Grants

The Future Ready Iowa Summer Youth Intern Program Grant is a funding opportunity to place youth at risk of not graduating high school in internships primarily in high-demand career fields. Employers, non-profit groups, and educational institutions are encouraged to apply for the grant, which will fund projects centered on helping local youth build key workforce skills.

Funds may be used for services and resources to support costs of program participants, including for example: internship wages, training resources, transportation of the participants, clothing, program staff time and indirect costs.
