Intern program to use $600,000 Lilly grant in 3-year plan

Indiana INTERNnet plans to implement a three-year plan to strengthen its services, encourage more participation and improve networking among employers, colleges, universities and students, officials announced Friday.

A recent $600,000 grant from Lilly Endowment will help the organization “take things to the next level,” executive director Janet Boston said in a statement.

The statewide resource for high school and college internships is managed by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce. The service has helped more than 50,000 students and 5,500 employers with internships since it was created about 10 years ago.

One of the goals of Indiana INTERNnet is to retain top talent by connecting students with suitable employers within the state.
