MU-SCORE Workforce Traineeship Application

Application Process

Millersville University and SCORE Lancaster-Lebanon have partnered to launch a non-credit pilot program to help students develop career-readiness skills and build work experience.

Through the MU-SCORE Workforce Traineeship Program, Millersville students will receive education awards of $1,155 from the University to serve as trainees in select Lancaster county business and non-profit organization host sites. Trainees serve a minimum of 100 hours (8-10 hours a week) during a fall, spring or summer term. Prior to and during the traineeship, student trainees also receive 15-20 hours of mentoring and professional skills training to develop their career readiness competencies, as defined by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE).

Student trainees will be matched to employer-hosted jobs and projects for which they are well-suited because of personal, professional and academic preparation and a deeper appreciation of the employer’s company culture.
