That’s the number of students and recent graduates whose employment plans this summer have changed due to COVID-19. For many across the country, internships are the main source of income, providing food, shelter, and ultimately a chance to secure a job in their respective fields.

As part of our #SaveInternships campaign, we have launched the Intern Relief Fund, with the goal of helping 500 interns through stipends ranging from $150 to $1500, depending on need. Your contributions will ensure America’s aspiring workforce can remain economically secure this summer while continuing to pursue opportunity.

Background: Pay Our Interns (POI) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that believes a young adult’s socioeconomic status should not impede them from getting real-world work experience. POI spearheaded the creation of the Congressional Intern Fund which has awarded over $20 million to 6,000 interns in the past two years.
