Ohio Third Frontier’s Diversity & Inclusion Technology Internship Program is seeking college students and companies to take part in the new program. Ohio Third Frontier provides access to a network of resources statewide, including TechGROWTH Ohio, one of their Entrepreneurial Support Provider programs located at Ohio University’s Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs.
Highly motivated and driven college students can apply to be placed at early-stage technology companies or companies that demonstrate a need for technology. Students will get real-world business and entrepreneurial experience as they work at the assigned company. The program is open to students from all majors who are from Ohio or attending school in Ohio and is geared toward students from minority populations.
Entrepreneurs and companies can also apply to be part of the program. If selected to provide a meaningful internship to an Ohio student, entrepreneurs and companies can receive up to $10,000 to cover two-thirds of an intern’s wages. The host companies must be located in Ohio and provide a meaningful internship experience for its intern(s). Internships are completed before the end of the calendar year and last between three and six months.
The deadline for companies to apply for the summer program is April 30. The deadline for students for summer 2018 has passed, but will be open to students again in the future. For more information and to apply, visit https://www.development.ohio.gov/bs_thirdfrontier/diip.htm.
