The Hancock County Economic Development Intern Program was developed to provide added benefit to HCEDC Investors Student Internship programs with a goal to help Interns advance towards a successful future.

The Student Internship Program is designed to nurture the educational and professional development of interns, which may lead to longer retention of the individual to Hancock County. Student Interns will have the opportunity to network and expand their leadership skills.

This program is funded by the HCEDC and its investing partners and in part by a grant from the Hancock County Foundation.

This is also a FREE resource to HCEDC investing partners.



The Iowa Student Internship Program provides grants to small and medium-sized companies in targeted industries to support internship programs with a goal of transitioning interns to full-time employment in Iowa upon graduation. The goal is to retain educated workers in Iowa.
