About Dakota Seeds

Internships are a great way to help fill your temporary workforce needs and establish a pipeline for permanent employees. Internships also enhance a student’s education by providing work experience in their chosen career pathway.

To promote internships, the Dakota Seeds Program can provide 50% of the intern’s wages with a maximum of $2000 per intern. Internships must relate to a high need industry sector. Please see program guidelines for more information.

If you are interested in posting an internship, please contact the Department of Labor and Regulation (DLR), either at a local office (Click here for a listing of our offices) or through the DLR website.
