UMF Launches Internship Initiative with Grant from Bangor Savings Bank Foundation
University of Maine at Farmington was recently awarded a three-year grant totaling $45,000 by the Bangor Savings Bank Foundation to help fund the student internship program of the new UMF Partnership for Civic Advancement. The UMF Partnership for Civic Advancement is a new initiative that is being implemented to engage students in the real world of community businesses and organizations, according to the Sun Journal. About 20 interns are expected to participate in the internships each year, providing the students with vital work experience that also benefits the community. In recognition of Bangor Savings Bank’s support of this initiative, interns sponsored through this grant will be known as the UMF-Bangor Savings Bank Interns.
