Entrepreneurial Internship Program

Connecting students to entrepreneurial summer internships

There is no better way to learn how entrepreneurship works than to work in an entrepreneurial setting and no better time to do so than the summer. The Entrepreneurial Internship Program connects students with summer jobs in entrepreneurial settings.

For new ventures who have not raised significant funding or generated significant revenue, who are not able to pay their interns, we offer a limited number of Internship Grants through the career office that pays $4,500 per student for a 10-week summer internship. Read on to learn more.

What people say

The Student Perspective

“Things were very much hands on and self-driven. I overall gained a better understanding of how testing infrastructure is made and I got better at problem solving. I learned I was much more capable than I thought I was.” – Matt, a CS major

The Employer Perspective

“I was blown away by how well our interns worked independently. They were eager to get stuff done, and they absolutely helped us to perform better as a company while they were here.” – Sebastian Coates, Cofounder & CEO of Tellescope
