As part of Ann Arbor SPARK’s commitment to workforce development, Ann Arbor SPARK funds the Digital Summer Clinic, a service provided by Eastern Michigan University’s Center for Digital Engagement. The program, which is open to students from any school, pairs teams of students with companies at the Ann Arbor SPARK Incubator. These paid, part-time internships require students to commit to 10 hours per week and run for nine weeks — from mid-June through mid-August. Interns frequently become full-time employees after the program concludes. Learn More
