The Final Talent Pool
What is the Final Talent Pool?
When students apply to the T. Howard Foundation there are two phases to the application process. Phase One consists of the online application and required additional documents. Applicants scoring high enough in Phase One will advance to Phase Two.
Phase Two of the application process is an interview. Applicants meeting the T. Howard Foundation standards for the interview will be accepted into the Final Talent Pool.
Only students accepted into the Final Talent Pool are ELIGIBLE for an internship opportunity with a host company partner. Acceptance as a Final Talent Pool candidate does not guarantee an internship.
From Final Talent Pool to T. Howard Intern
In the Spring our host company partners work with us to identify summer internship placement opportunities. For each open position, the Foundation review committee conducts a search of the Final Talent Pool candidates for the top candidates meeting the company's needs. The top candidates are reviewed and potentially interviewed by the Host Company. Each host company makes the final hiring decision. The placement process will last through mid-May.

Were you a member of the 2013 Final Talent Pool?
FTP 2013 candidates who wish to be considered for a spring 2014, summer 2014 or fall 2014 internship opportunity must update their profile with the Foundation by December 1, 2013 at 11:59 PM EST to be reconsidered for an internship.
Previous Final Talent Pool members must logon to the online application and complete the re-admit process and pay the $10.00 application fee.
The readmit process includes updating your personal profile information and submitting an updated resume and academic transcript.
