Coleman Entrepreneurship Center Internship Program

The Coleman Entrepreneurship Center Internship Program gives students hands-on experience working closely with founders on specific projects at an entrepreneurial venture. This year we also included a track for organizations with a social impact and sustainability focus.

Selected students accepted into the CEC Internship program will work for a total of 125 hours and no more than 20 hours a week at an organization. Students will receive a $2,000 stipend to offset the costs of the internship.

Applications close April 21, 2024.
