These grants will provide internship opportunities in GIS, law, communications, environmental management, transportation, planning, and other county departments in 26 counties throughout the state. 

In addition to the general grants provided through the Foundation, there are two specialty grants that are awarded each year. The Kundell Environmental Management Internship Grant, created by the Foundation in honor of the late Dr. Jim Kundell, has been awarded for four internships in Chatham, Jasper, McDuffie, and Pike counties. These internships will include GIS projects for water distribution systems, manholes, and sewer lines,  projects for Keep Jasper Beautiful, and septic system education and awareness. The Garner Health and Human Service Internship, created by the Foundation in honor of late Fulton County Commissioner Joan Garner, has been awarded Chatham County to develop Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility to foster the county’s diversity goals.
