The Ohio Export Internship program is designed for companies looking to export for the first time or to improve their current export initiatives. The program matches businesses with highly motivated students from Ohio universities and colleges who have taken export-focused coursework.

Participating businesses are provided a 50 percent reimbursement for intern wages. This internship program will offer a mutually beneficial relationship to students and companies by providing real-world experiences in which both can learn and grow.
