Students meeting the program requirements can submit an application to the Blair County Executive Internship Committee anytime during the school year through April 30th. The Committee will review all of the applications and notify students whether they have been accepted to the program.
Students accepted into the network are required to attend several social and networking events throughout the summer and will be formally recognized by the business community at the Altoona-Blair County Development Corporation’s annual breakfast meeting held in the spring of each year.
Each intern also becomes part of the Blair County Regional Intern Database which will be accessed by regional business representatives as staff positions become available. Specific work schedules and applicable rates of pay must be determined in advance between the host organization and participating intern. Students accepted into the program will receive a $1000 Scholarship following successful completion of the internship.
