Funding will help Ohio tech intern program

The Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce is one of eight organizations getting money from the Ohio Third Frontier Internship Program for a high-tech internship program.

The Toledo chamber will get $428,571 in state money, approved by the state controlling board.

A release from state Rep. Michael Ashford (D., Toledo) said the program’s goals are to develop a pool of talented workers for Ohio’s businesses, create enriching student work experiences, and assist students in obtaining permanent full-time jobs in Ohio after graduation.

The program will reimburse private companies up to 50 percent of an intern’s wages or up to $3,000 for a 12-month period. Eligible students must be in their sophomore year at a technology, community, or four-year college, or a master’s or doctoral candidate enrolled in degree programs with a high-tech curriculum.
