Emerging Leaders

The 2015 Emerging Leaders Summer Internship Program for College and Graduate Students with Disabilities is underway! The application deadline for college students with disabilities interested in the Emerging Leaders program is Friday, October 31, 2014.

A program of the National Business & Disability Council (NBDC) at The Viscardi Center, our Emerging Leaders program offers paid summer internships at many of America's leading corporations. These companies are our NBDC corporate partners (www.nbdc.com), and they are proactive in recruiting qualified students with disabilities. To be considered for an internship, a student must be an enrolled undergraduate or graduate student with a disability, who has completed at least 60 credits, and is maintaining at least a 3.0 GPA.

Accompanying this letter, please find two informative flyers about the Emerging Leaders program, Emerging Leaders: Bringing New Talent to the Workforce. One is designed for traditional students, and the other one is designed for Veterans enrolled in school. We are providing you with this information to distribute to the student population at your school- particularly those registered with your office.

Information on how to apply can be found on the newly designed and better organized website at http://www.viscardicenter.org/services/nbdc/emerging-leaders/. Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions, or desire additional information.
