The cost of our summer internship program is $6,000 per student, plus travel expenses when the project warrants. With current budget constraints, it has become difficult to fund four graduate students per summer. With help from you, we can maintain our level of commitment and possibly expand the program and help more students learn how to conduct economic development research.

Please consider a monetary contribution to this important program. The summer internship program helps students gain valuable experience in conducting economic development research that is both rewarding to each student and of practical use to economic development practitioners.
