NEW PROGRAM HELPS STEM MAJORS FIND INTERNSHIPS

College and university students majoring in science, engineer­ing, technology and math (STEM) fields have a free new resource for summer 2013 internships, as do companies that wish to hire them, thanks to a new program sponsored by the Virginia Space Grant Consortium (VSGC).

The consortium, which is based at Old Dominion and includes institutions of higher education throughout the state, established the Commonwealth STEM Industry Internship Program (CSIIP). It was announced earlier this fall at the Northern Virginia Technology Coun­cil Titans of Technology breakfast.

CSIIP offers a no-cost, centralized, online application system that allows students majoring in STEM fields at accredited Virginia col­leges and universities, or Virginia students attending out-of-state accredited colleges and universities, the ability to search and apply for paid STEM-related summer internships with Virginia companies. Additionally, it provides Virginia companies with free access to a large statewide pool of qualified students for their summer internship opportunities. Students provide one compre­hensive application that can be reviewed by potentially hundreds of companies throughout the state.
