BoatU.S. Foundation Seeks Summer Intern
OMC Foundation Provides Funding
The BoatU.S. Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water, a national non-profit organization promoting safe, smart, and clean boating, has received a grant from The OMC Foundation, Inc., to endow a position this summer for a college intern. EThe multi-year grant was made on behalf of the former employees of Outboard Marine Corporation as a legacy to their many contributions to the marine industry.

"The goal of this program is to show students that one can not only enjoy recreational boating, but make a career of it as well," said Margaret Podlich, Assistant Vice President of the BoatU.S. Foundation.

"By working with the Foundation in our Annapolis, MD office, the intern will be exposed to a variety of people, organizations, businesses and projects," she added.

Each spring the Foundation accepts resumes from current college students who are active boaters. ECandidates must have MS Office skills, strong oral and written communication skills, and independent research ability. For consideration, email a resume to the BoatU.S. Human Resources Department at or fax to 703-461-4395.

The BoatU.S Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit education and research organization primarily funded by the voluntary contributions of 580,000 members of BoatU.S., the nation's largest recreational boat owners association.

The Foundation operates more than a dozen programs including the only accredited, free, online general boating safety course, a low-cost EPIRB rental program, the "Help Stop the Drops" national clean fueling campaign, a free kid's Life Jacket Loaner program, and grants for nonprofit groups for boating safety and environmental projects.
