STEM Internship Opportunities
The Science Learning Institute connects STEM students with school-year and summer internships. Scholarships are provided for students through the Financial Aid office.
Scholarships provide students with opportunities to attend college, advance their knowledge and skills for workforce preparedness, and help them prepare for both academic opportunities and financial challenges after transfer.
Summer internships are available through the Science Learning Institute. This is a great time to participate in a part-time internship while taking a few courses. Stipends are offered for most of these internships.
SLI is also looking to expand internship offerings during the school year, so keep a lookout for opportunities to come.
Internships benefit partners as well as students - read what one of our partners, the UCSF Rosenman Institute has to say about our partnership.
