The Office of the Secretary of Higher Education (OSHE) is pleased to offer the Career Accelerator Internship Grant Program. As enumerated in the New Jersey’s Student Bill of Rights, every New Jersey student should have experiential learning opportunities. OSHE is striving to strengthen the connections between employers and New Jersey institutions of higher education (IHEs) to generate those opportunities while ensuring that there are positive educational impacts for all students. This grant program will provide funding to New Jersey employers who are interested in hosting undergraduate or graduate interns from New Jersey’s IHEs for Summer 2024 (May through August). The grant program aims to foster mutually-beneficial relationships between New Jersey’s college students and New Jersey-based employers.

The deadline to apply for Career Accelerator Internship Grant Program for Summer 2024 is Friday, January 12, 2024 at 5:00 p.m.
