For the third consecutive year, the PASSHE Economic Development Grant for Internship Initiatives has been renewed. The 2009–2010 $30,000 grant is codirected by Dr. Richard Lamberski, professor of Communications Media, and Mr. Mark Anthony, director of the Career Development Center.

Past projects that have been funded with the grant money are the Employer’s Corner Video Series, a Gaming and Interactive Entertainment brochure, an Information Assurance brochure highlighting high-need occupations in the region, and a universitywide partnership brochure to help promote internships between IUP and state organizations or companies.

The Communications Department and the Career Development Center will use the money from this year’s grant to assist in the continuation of the Employer’s Corner Series, to complete a third brochure for high-need occupations, and to greatly expand resources for faculty and students.
