For over a decade, the National Association for Equal Opportunity in Higher Education (NAFEO) has facilitated internship assignments in government and industry for students enrolled in historically and predominantly black colleges and universities. The program is unique because NAFEO arranges placements for students with employers, while providing an allowance for housing. Additionally, interns are also provided stipends to defray the cost of transportation to and from their work sites. For interns who are employed in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, NAFEO provides an orientation session at the beginning of each program session, and brings all interns together at least twice during their assignment periods for seminars on a range of topics which enhance the internship experiences.
Programs are intended for students looking for opportunities to gain valuable work experience to supplement coursework. NAFEO works with the Nation’s 120 historically and predominantly black colleges and universities to recruit outstanding students with the potential to become future leaders. Through internship assignments, students are provided “hands-on” opportunities to apply their classroom knowledge in challenging work experiences.
