The joint commands of the Elizabeth City Coast Guard Base are pleased to announce
a new internship initiative with Elizabeth City State University (ECSU). Three ECSU
students have been chosen to work at the Coast Guard Aircraft Repair and Supply Center
(ARSC) in Elizabeth City this summer. Student interns will start on June 3, 2008
and continue for nine weeks ending on August 1, 2008.
ECSU is using a U.S. Department of Education grant called Title III, Part B (the "Strengthening
Historically Black Colleges and Universities Program") to fund three students who
will participate in the new internship program at the Coast Guard base this summer.
It will include a stipend for the students, housing, food and transportation if needed.
The grant was originally authorized by the Higher Education Act of 1965, and is designed
to provide financial assistance to those institutions officially designated as Historically
Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).
