Please read this before applying for an internship grant: Building a Successful Internship Program.

Internships are an opportunity to identify and evaluate potential full-time hires for your organization. Building a structured internship program will provide the opportunity for your firm to recruit talented students and provide a flexible, cost-effective labor force without a long-term commitment.

MCAA believes that students who work for one of its members will enhance their education, their professional experience, and their interest in the mechanical contracting industry.  Therefore, we are offering grants to current MCAA members who hire undergraduates as interns. 

Interns must be students in good standing at an accredited college or university.  Though MCAA encourages its members to give priority to students from its 50+ student chapters, this is not a requirement for a grant.   

Grant Description

The amount of the 2017 Internship Grant is $1,000 per intern hired by an MCAA member firm.  An individual firm will be reimbursed by MCERF a maximum of two (2) interns. Grants will be paid in the form a check from the Mechanical Contracting Education & Research Foundation (MCERF) to the member company.  The grant check will be sent upon the acceptance of a completed 2017 Student Internship Application (see application link below).

Eligibility

An eligible MCAA member is one whose membership is currently in good standing with the MCAA.  MCAA members include its mechanical contractor and mechanical service members, plumbing members and its Manufacturer/Supplier Council members.
