Neilson Foundation offers business incentives

Bemidji State and the George W. Neilson Foundation are now accepting applications from Bemidji area employers for a summer program.

The program offers financial incentives to businesses that hire Bemidji State and Northwest Technical College students for paid internships.

The Foundation will fund 15 internships, including one specifically for health and nursing, and 14 for any other private business pertaining to any major or program.

Funding is split equally with 50 percent of the intern’s hourly wage paid by the Foundation, up to $2,500, and the remaining 50 percent paid by the participating business.

Applications are due March 5, and are available by contacting BSU/NTC Career Services or here: 2020-Employer-Application-Fillable
