Internship Grants

Your Turn Intern Expo & Celebrity Fest donates a portion of our proceeds from our show activities to fund internship grants / financial aid fellowships to benefit deserving college students and recent college grads placed in unpaid or paid internships at our partnering businesses, community-based organizations, chambers of commerce, educational institutions, and government agencies in our targeted production territories including Southern California, Atlanta, Silicon Valley, Chicago, Miami, and New York.   We understand that sometimes students may bypass internship opportunities simply because of limited financial resources made available to them during internship placement.  To this end, our prestigious grants, which range from $1,000.00 to $4,000.00 each, will be awarded during the following upcoming grant application cycles; Spring 2019, Summer 2019 & Fall 2019.

Priority consideration is given to the following;

  • Applicants that have been hired to intern at companies or agencies that exhibit at Your Turn Intern Expo.
  • Applicants that have graduated and/or received certification from the Millennium Momentum Foundation Leadership Development Institute (LDI) or Your Turn Intern Expo Professional Development Series.
  • Applicants that have been honored at Your Turn Intern Expo’s “30 Under 30” Most Powerful Intern Showcase & Award Ceremony.
  • Students nominated by partnering college campus-based student leadership organizations.

Your Turn Intern Expo & Celebrity Fest recognizes the valuable contributions of interns in their pursuit of workplace practical experience and as such, we’re committed to…turning unpaid internships into paid internships or providing a financial aid boost to further enhance paid internships!
