How do I get an intern?
Figure out what you would like an intern to do for your organization and fill out a proposal form. Once we receive your proposal, students and recent graduates can apply, and you will select your intern.
What are the financial responsibilities for my institution?
ACT offers a unique cost sharing approach to paying internship stipends. AmeriCorps will match your funds 1:1. You pay your portion to New Mexico Highlands University, and the university pays the intern a biweekly stipend. The stipend depends on the number of hours of the internship.

What if I don’t have money in my budget for an intern?
Many of our host institutions use funds provided by their foundations or support groups, receive private donations, write stipends into grant proposal budgets, or use funds from their “contract services” budget line items. They find that our interns provide them with practical and affordable design and technology solutions to which they would not otherwise have access.
