The TAG-Ed High School Summer Internship Program offers exceptional high school students with a technology career path, the opportunity to learn in a real-world environment and get hands-on experience in a field of study relating to Science, Technology, Engineering or Math (STEM). Students are matched with companies based on related interests and qualifications. The internship is for a minimum of five (5) consecutive weeks.

Interns

This is a paid internship and participating in this proven program provides valuable exposure and experience that applies to any field you are pursuing. The program pairs two or more interns together to work on a provided project with clear goals and objectives given by the company. Interns will also have the opportunity to work closely with a professional that has expertise and/or a professional background in the field of experience.

The internship is for a minimum of five (5) consecutive weeks. High school students must be at least 16 years old to apply and be available to work between the dates of June 1st and July 31st. Prospective interns must apply using the link on our website, including a resume.   The application window will open on January 16 and close on February 29. Competition is great for these coveted opportunities. Be sure and take full advantage of the exposure the host companies are offering to expand your skills.

There will be an intern information session held Thursday, March 7th from 4:30 PM – 5:00 PM for all applicants via Zoom. Applicants will receive an email with the Zoom link when the application closes.

  • Please note: applying for an internship does not guarantee placement
