2014 Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship Internship Program
PROGRAM DESCRIPTION & APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS
Applications are due Tuesday, March 25 at 12:00 noon
The Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship is pleased to announce an internship program to support students interested in working at start-ups and entrepreneurial ventures. Exposure to real-world startups and small businesses is a valuable experience for students. It expands students’ view of entrepreneurship from an abstract concept to a real-world experience, and for many it triggers their entrepreneurial spirit. This program hopes to help meet the demand of students who are excited, engaged and curious to know more about the startup community and thinking about pursuing a career in the startup space. It gives students the opportunity to develop their entrepreneurial skills by accelerating the advancement of the host company.
Starting 2014, all application materials must be submitted to FluidReview.com (see “Application Materials” below for details).
This program is competitive and will award a select number of students up to $4,000 to help subsidize their living and moving expenses over the summer while engaged in full-time employment at a start up.* Students of all majors are encouraged to apply. All participants are required to complete the requirements of INT 199, Internships, for at least ½ academic credit.
* This program is not designed for students initiating their own ventures (the CIE and Kravis Leadership Institute sponsor another program for that purpose—the CIE/KLI Fellows Program, which provides financial support and office space over the summer months). Applications for that program are available on the CIE and KLI websites, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org or Neela.email@example.com
