PPOHA Internship Program 2015

Funded by US Department of Education, the PPOHA (Promoting Post-baccalaureate Opportunities for Hispanic Americans) grant encourages and provides support to graduate students in computer science and mathematics to find and participate internships in local, regional and national companies as well as non-profit organizations such as national labs, where the students can get firsthand industry experience and/or research training to enhance their career capabilities. The PPOHA grant will assist students for internships in two ways:

  • The PPOHA grant personnel will help students find appropriate intern positions while students are welcome to find their own.
  • The PPOHA grant will pay students up to the allocated budget for their approved internships in case the employer does not.
