(This amendment increases funds to support the Innovative Internship Fund and Program. The funds will go to advancing the role of internships in post-secondary education, and to improve access and affordability to internship opportunities for students, including (1) consistency in the delivery of internship programs within and across institutions and the ability to bring experiential learning to scale equitably, 2) creation of a vision at institutions that experiential learning is integral (not extra), 3) development of readiness materials and information for new programs to support quality, 4) growth of new business partnerships, 5) improved affordability for students, and 6) improving and leveraging federal work-study opportunities through redesigned work-study internship experiences. The Innovative Internship Fund and Program was created during the 2018 Session to support institutional grants and a statewide initiative to facilitate the readiness of students, employers, and institutions of higher education to participate in internship and other work-related learning opportunities.)
