Yes! Our goal with the Opportunity Greensboro Fellows Program is to offer college students a 10-week program with high-quality, local, paid internships. We have secured internship opportunities that will provide you with paid high-touch industry experience. Now you might be wondering how much each internship pays…payment varies – see internship descriptions for details.
As a Fellow, you are in the Opportunity Greensboro Fellows Program cohort with other local college students (36 students were in the 2016 cohort and 53 students were in the 2017 cohort). The Fellows Program Director will implement professional development opportunities throughout the summer, as well as community events throughout Greensboro. Greensboro has so much to offer to community members, and as a Fellow, the opportunities will be even easier to access and experience.
