In June of 2006, Libra Future Fund launched a new initiative, Summer in Maine, which seeks to promote internship opportunities and create a network of interns who can experience all that living in Maine has to offer. Internships provide a unique opportunity for college students to gain valuable experience, make professional connections in Maine, and introduce them to Maine as a potential place to live and work.
Organizations affiliated with Summer in Maine 2013 are:

While Summer in Maine actively promotes internships in various industries throughout Maine, selection of candidates for those positions is left to the discretion of the individual employers. Interns involved with Summer in Maine are employees-at-will of their respective organizations. While we do not actively recruit or hire interns, we may be able to refer candidates to affiliated internship opportunities. Students interested in this may contact Libra Future Fund.
