County of Applicant:

The purpose of this grant is to provide funding to North Carolina Central University’s BRITE Institute to initiate ten-week paid internships for 20 students per year at biotech and pharmaceutical companies located in rural North Carolina. BRITE will develop agreements with pharmaceutical/biotech companies in rural counties to gain an understanding of their employment needs and recruit students for internship placement. BRITE advisors will work to assure adequate housing is identified for interns, provide an orientation for student prior to placement, and assist companies with monitoring student performance. Golden LEAF funds will be used to pay work stipends and to assist students with housing and travel while working in rural companies.
