Norwich University’s Career and Internship Center has received $15,000 in grant funding from the Vermont Department of Labor to support student internships by providing partial reimbursements for gas mileage.

The funding will support about 50 students with up to $800 in mileage reimbursement during the calendar year of 2018. Students qualify by applying to the Career and Internship Center. Eligible students are reimbursed at rate of $.535/mile.

“Internships are an integral part of a Norwich education, exposing Norwich students to real-world experience in their chosen field. Norwich’s experiential learning model prepares students to be valuable members of local businesses, industry and government while still students. It’s a win-win, and this grant helps Norwich students get there,” said Internship Coordinator Jim Graves.

Norwich University’s Career and Internship Center helps coordinate internships for credit in all majors, and any student working at an internship is eligible to apply to receive mileage reimbursement from this Vermont Dept. of Labor Secondary and Post-Secondary Internship Program. Awards are granted on a first come, first served basis.

Norwich’s largest academic program, Criminal Justice, also boasts the highest proportion of internships (pictured) at about 20 percent.
