If you are a small technology company looking for a grant to help fund an internship program.
The Technology Talent Bridge Internship Program is intended to develop stronger university-industry collaborations in Connecticut for the purpose of strengthening our workforce and retaining our talent in the state.
Given Connecticut's interest in developing and retaining talent, interns should ideally have a pathway to future employment in local industry or in the state's research institutions.
A participating student intern should be actively enrolled and pursuing an associate's degree or certificate program at a community college, or a bachelor's (junior and senior level only), master's, PhD or postgraduate degree at a Connecticut higher education institution. Internships will not be subsidized by CI after graduation. Students who are Connecticut residents but attend out-of-state colleges or universities are also eligible for summer internships.
Maximum of $25,000 grant per project.
- There is a limit of one Talent Bridge project per company per year.
- The primary use of funds is to provide for student internship compensation.
- Companies must be in business for at least one year and registered as a business in Connecticut with the Secretary of State for at least 12 months prior to submittal of a project plan and budget.
- For companies that have moved or set up operations in Connecticut within the past 12 months, evidence of prior registration in another state will be accepted.
