NOVEMBER MEET, GREET & NETWORK
INTERNSHIP SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
The Frankfort Chamber of Commerce has developed an Internship Scholarship Program and will be joining forces with Lincoln-Way East’s Co-Op program. The goal of this program is to partner with Chamber businesses that are interested in offering aspiring students the opportunity to intern with your business. Our hope is that by taking on an intern, you and your team will be able to inspire our future leaders and give them hands-on experience and a bit of insight into your profession.
If you are interested in applying to be one of our flagship internships businesses, please complete the attached application and submit it no later than December 15, 2022.
