Manufacturers that hire high school interns can be reimbursed up to $1,500 for student wages from the Ohio Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) High School Internship Program. But time is running short to apply.
Current funding is available on a first-come, first-served basis and can cover internship wages through September 30, 2021. Contact the Ohio MEP partner in your region if you’re interested. (Note: The OMA has published this guidance for manufacturers interested in hiring 16- and 17-year-old students to work part-time.) 8/3/2021
