What kind of incentives do companies get from the government to have collaboration with colleges and universities?

I often see that many companies in the industry reach out to colleges and universities to offer some internships, programs, seminars, etc in the US. Do they receive any incentives from the government for doing this? 

I am trying to understand the motivation.

    None at all, in the U.S. anyway. 

    Companies are looking for cheap labor; to "try out" potential employees, good publicity, etc.

    the companies are looking for potential future employees ... as well as to fill grunt work jobs while the normal people are on vacation

    None. No, the government doesn't supply incentives to companies.  The benefit to companies is that they get a chance to preview and recruit potential employees.  Interns are basically free or very low-cost labor. During the internship the company can decide if they want to hire the intern when they graduate or not.

    No, they don't get government incentive.  They get either cheap or free help during that time, and might also find some new employees to hire upon their graduation.

    The motivation is that the company gets some very cheap or free labor, and they get a lot of time to choose the students that will be offered permanent jobs when they graduate...so it gives them higher quality employees.

    Not from the government.

    The incentive is for a company to form a relationship with a college for future employment of graduates.
