Businesses Sought to Provide Summer 2023 Paid Internships

Become a 2023 Internship Provider

Recently, numerous Minnesota technology business leaders attended an event at Target Field in Minneapolis to learn more about the 10-year Minnesota Aspirations in Computing Award (MNAiC) summer internship program and consider becoming a summer 2023 internship provider.

Since 2013 nearly 100 high school students who identify as women, genderqueer, or non-binary have supported area businesses to achieve technical goals to address a myriad of company needs and issues.  In the summer of 2022, eighteen top-tier award honorees worked for 7 companies in roles that were fully or partially remote, or fully in-person.  All the students worked with small to large teams of technology professionals, offering their inspiring energy and remarkable technology skills.   The students earned $16-$20 per hour to help pay family expenses and future college costs.

Program Dates/Timelines:

  • Internship providers are recruited now through January.
  • Top-Tier MNAiC honorees declare their interest internship in February.
  • Companies interview candidates in March.
  • Company and matched interns are showcased at the annual awards event in Mid-April.
  • Internships occur in June through August.

If you or your company would like to learn more about participation expectations and company benefits, contact, or call 651.253.9438.
