As a FYI, throughout my last few issues, I’ve been promoting ND’s Operation Intern
applications, which opened 2/1. Due to a crazy fast amount of demand, the application window has already closed as all the available funds are now allocated. This is both a sign that company’s like this program but also that it could likely use more state funding. If this follows the same pattern of the last few years, you can expect the next application window to open around 2/1/23.
