Employer Submissions are open for 2018 Monroe-Brown internships!

Company submissions for hosting a Monroe-Brown Intern will be reviewed by the Monroe-Brown Internship Program Committee, and will only be approved for internships geographically located in Kalamazoo County.

Questions should be directed to Petey Stephanak at 269.492.3672.

Companies hosting Monroe-Brown Internships must agree to the following terms:

  • Southwest Michigan First and the Monroe-Brown Foundation have permission to use your company’s name and logo in announcements of this program. This includes the websites and printed materials.
  • Your company will provide a paid internship of at least 400 hours at minimum of wage or higher. (We recommend a wage of $12 – $20/hour.)
  • Monroe-Brown Internships are summer internships and fall within the suggested guidelines of May 1 through August 31 of the program year.
  • Your company will agree to give the intern a bonus of $500 at the completion of 400 hours of work. This payment serves as confirmation of completion and allows the Monroe-Brown Foundation to release funds to the student’s school. If the intern does not perform suitably, please inform either Southwest Michigan First or the Monroe-Brown Foundation prior to completion of 200 hours.
