Offer a paid STEM internship that provides hands-on industry experience:
- Qualifying internships must enhance a student’s educational experiences and offer insightful, practical, first-hand training that, when leveraged with their college education, would help them achieve full-time employment in their field of study after graduation
- SciTech internships have a focus on STEM. Ideal internships will include tasks such as analysis and problem solving; product development, design, testing, implementation and troubleshooting; research; and field or laboratory work
- Positions that primarily involve administrative, marketing, sales, advertising, generalist, assembly, purchasing, production, etc. duties will not be considered
- Wage matches are available for positions that meet the following criteria:
- The intern has not already been hired for the company’s internship position (no “retroactive” matches)
- The intern is registered with and approved by SciTech for participation in the program
- The company is registered with and approved by SciTech, and has an active, approved STEM internship posted on SciTechMN.org prior to hiring an intern
- The employer reports the hire of eligible interns to SciTech staff prior to the start of the internship; this notification will serve to ensure that funds for a wage match are still available and may be set aside for the position.
