New Internship Grant Process for 2023

December 27, 2022

MCAA wants to hear about all of your mechanical contracting interns and has revised the internship grant application process to ensure program success is being rewarded and celebrated.

Part 1: MCAA members with one intern are eligible for a $1,000 grant. Companies with two or more interns may receive a $2,000 grant. One form should be filled out for each intern.  

Part 2: For companies successfully converting an intern (from their part 1 list) to a full-time new hire, a $500 gift card will be mailed to the company to present to their new hire. These new hire conversations are now unlimited, but the name of the new hire must be included on a part 1 list from an MCAA member company to be eligible. 

Applications will continue to be accepted on a rolling basis and may be submitted once per calendar year, per intern.

Congratulations to the 88 MCAA member companies that were awarded 2022 Internship Grants!

Having MCAA interns working at member companies is a win-win for the mechanical contracting industry.  Employers get top talent and build a pipeline of future employees.  Students gain experience create connections, develop skills and further their interest in mechanical contracting.
