Entrepreneurial Internships 

Through "London’s Small Business Centre “Summer Company” program, Huron students can receive start-up money to kick-off a new summer business, along with advice and mentorship from local business leaders to help get the business up and running. 

Each student can receive a maximum award of $3,000, with extra earning potential stemming from net profits. Successful Summer Company applicants get up to $1,500 for start-up costs and an additional $1,500 when students successfully complete the program requirements.

Students must submit independently. Eligible students must run their business from May through to August. As funding is limited, Huron ensures that a minimum of five quality applications will be accepted into the program.

Applicants Must Meet the Following Criteria
