Think BIG! Beloit Internship Grants
During the 2014-2015 school year, Beloit College received a grant from Great Lakes Higher Education Guaranty Corporation's Career Ready Internship Initiative for the implementation of Think BIG!, a program to create full-time paid internships in the Beloit Community for Beloit College juniors and seniors with demonstrated financial need.
In Summer 2014, 15 interns were placed in local organizations in Beloit, Janesville, and Rockford to engage in career-ready experiences directly connected to their areas of interest. Students joined non-profit organizations such as Downtown Beloit Assocation, Burpee Museum of Natural History, HealthNet of Rock County, Diversity Action Team of Rock County and more. They also joined for-profit organizations like Bushel & Peck's, Hufcor, and Janesville Gazette. See the 2013-2014 program page for a full listing of sites.
Beloit College is pleased to announce the continuation of the Think BIG! program and the renewal of the Great Lakes Higher Education Guaranty Corporation's Career Ready Internship Initiative grant. Think BIG! will create 21 full-time internships in local organizations for summer 2015.
