FHSU students gain experience through internships in area

HAYS – Twenty-five area employers collaborated with Fort Hays State University to utilize student interns during a time when many businesses, non-profits and public agencies were financially stressed by pandemic-related stay-at-home orders and social distancing guidelines.

The students gained valuable experience, and the employers received 240 to 300 hours of student work. Many were instrumental in helping services, programs and products that had been provided in person to transition to a virtual platform.

Grant funding covered the majority of student intern wages.
