Scholarship Opportunity for Junior and Senior Students

Each year, Bank of America partners with Communities in Schools of San Antonio to offer an eight-week paid summer internship for five high school juniors and seniors through our Student Leaders® program.

The students will work for Communities in Schools, attend a week-long leadership summit in Washington, D.C., develop career skills and connect with like-minded students across the country.

The application is currently open and will close on January 29, 2021. Please share this opportunity with any colleagues or partners who may be interested. We appreciate your help spreading the word about the Bank of America Student Leaders Program.

Please let me know if I can provide you with any social media posts or other marketing materials.

CAST Tech uses computer-based learning to allow students to progress more quickly in areas where they have mastered concepts, allowing them to dive more deeply into projects and areas of great interest. College coursework is embedded in the program, and students can graduate with an associate's degree, industry certifications and portfolios that feature long-term projects and other examples of their work.
