Overview

The Diversity and Inclusion Technology Internship Program seeks to recruit highly motivated college students and place them at early-stage technology companies or companies with a technological need. This Program offers exciting opportunities for students to gain real-world entrepreneurial and business experience. Companies that select and hire interns will be reimbursed for two-thirds of the intern wages.

If you are a College Student

The application window for students is currently closed.

To be eligible for the Program, a student must be attending an Ohio institution or be an Ohio-resident, enrolled in degrees from Associate to the Doctoral level. We are looking for students in all disciplines, with a focus on STEM, business and finance, marketing and design. This Program emphasizes outreach toward students from minority populations (O.R.C. 184.17) to engage in technology and startup companies.

If you are a Company

The application window for companies is currently closed.

Host companies, located in Ohio, must be able to demonstrate that they can provide a meaningful entrepreneurial experience for one or more interns. Companies must pay an intern(s) a minimum hourly rate of $15/hour and will be reimbursed for two-thirds of intern wages up to $10,000 per internship. Companies chosen to participate must be an early-stage technology company or a company with a technological need. Companies will be provided with a list of interns who can be hired for part-time and/or full-time internships over summer and/or fall of 2018. The internships will last between three to six months, ending no later than December 31, 2018.
