STEM internship program off to a great start

February 5, 2013

The SciTechsperience Internship Program is off to a great start in 2013. In the first month, roughly 75 students and 21 companies applied from across the state. And, 9 students have already been placed in paid internships that will help them gain hands-on industry experience with small Minnesota companies.

SciTechsperience is a paid internship program that helps match college students studying in STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and math) with small, for-profit businesses in Minnesota. Qualifying companies must offer real-world experience in a STEM industry. In turn, they receive a dollar for dollar matching stipend up to $2,500 to help cover the cost of the intern’s wages. The matching stipends are available on a first come, first hired basis while funding is available. Companies may hire up to three interns through the program this year.

Could your company use a bright college student to help your organization bring a product or service to market faster? Need help starting or wrapping up project? It’s not too late to apply to the SciTechsperience program. Dozens of students, majoring in a broad range of science, technology, engineering and math degrees, are ready to work for you.
