Believe it or not: It is actually now time to start applying & interviewing for 2024 summer internships! Companies get budgets for internships approved months ahead of time & they often recruit nationally for the best talent.

Over half our students are making over $20/hr. I firmly believe the program avg is around 20–22/hr.
