UMD Athletics was awarded an Ethnic Minority and Women's Internship Grant.

The University of Minnesota Duluth Department of Intercollegiate Athletics has been awarded an Ethnic Minority and Women's Internship Grant from the NCAA for the 2016–17 school year.

This program provides funding for entry-level administrative positions at NCAA Division II schools and conference offices to encourage access, recruitment, selection and the long-term success of ethnic minorities and women.

The intern position hiring process is expected to begin next month and that individual's duties will center on athletic administration and the Bulldog Club.

"We are excited and grateful the NCAA has provided us with the opportunity to continue our mission of 'inspiring a region, building leaders' with this grant," said UMD associate athletic director and senior woman administrator Karen Stromme.

As part of the grant internship, the NCAA provides $22,500 to support the salary of the hired intern and $3,000 in professional development funding.
"Our thanks goes out to Karen Stromme for her leadership in securing this impactful grant," said UMD athletic director Josh Berlo. "We're honored to receive this grant and look forward to providing a rising star with a great career-building experience while working in Bulldog athletics."
