The SciTechsperience Internship Program

The SciTechsperience Internship Program helps connect college students majoring in science, technology engineering or math (STEM) fields with paid internships in small companies in Minnesota. In 2012, 67 students gained hands-on experience in their field of study while working at a small, STEM-based company in Minnesota. SciTechsperience offers students a chance to earn while they learn, build their professional resumes and make valuable networking connections. Six companies have already posted internship positions on our site and more are on the way!

The application process is the same, and the online form may be found at: http://www.mhta.org/work/scitechsperience-internships/ (Note: You must reapply, even if you qualified for the program in 2012)
