The Pack Internship Grant Program (PIGP) provides funding for individual student internships with local businesses, non-profits and public agencies. Our program seeks to assist local organizations in developing substantive internship opportunities for Nevada students. In addition to providing grant funding for internships (we provide student wages at $12/hour for 120 hours), we will work with you to create a new internship program or renovate an existing internship to ensure a mutually beneficial professional experience.
Inspired by his sister’s challenges with learning, eBravium co-founder and University MBA student, Cody Grimes, set out to create a software program that combines screen time learning and academic performance. The result is eBravium – a software that gamifies smart devices by making access contingent upon correctly answering academic questions correctly. For his innovation, Grimes was awarded $50,000 Monday, March 27 in the Sixth Annual Sontag Entrepreneurship Competition, during a luncheon held at Harrah’s Reno.
