Ann Arbor SPARK and the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) are launching Michigan STEM Forward, a statewide program that matches students attending Michigan colleges and universities with internship opportunities at the state’s leading innovative companies. Companies do not have to be in a specific industry, but all internships must be STEM-focused. Michigan STEM Forward provides students meaningful career experience and promotes job retention in the state, while providing financial support to companies who hire these interns.
As a special offering for our April 15 session, we’re hosting a fireside chat with Ann Arbor SPARK’s Bill Mayer and Spellbound’s Christina York on their experience hosting interns and the unexpected value and benefits of interns and mentorship.
Who is eligible:
Students attending a Michigan college or university pursuing a STEM-related profession.
Companies based in Michigan that can be verified by their local economic development organization and/ or MEDC SmartZone.
