Summer Internships provide entrepreneurial students with opportunities to gain essential experience in small to mid-sized businesses located throughout the US and abroad.

During the internship, each Cornell student brings the latest in entrepreneurial thinking from their classroom and applies it to their assignment. The business assignments are designed as hands-on experiences that will expose the intern to small business operation and will help to prepare the student as a next generation business leader, innovator and entrepreneur. In a reciprocal fashion, each business benefits from adding a creative, independent new employee to their team for a pre-determined time period and project.

Students from any of the schools and colleges are eligible to apply for these paid internships.

Cornell University’s Center for Advanced Technology (CAT) proudly supports matching grants for small, New York State biotechnology companies who wish to employ a student intern for 10 weeks during the summer.  Our CAT defines “biotechnology companies” as those that investigate, modify, and/or produce living microorganisms or organisms, living systems, or living ecosystems in fields including human medicine, veterinary medicine, agriculture, and biology.  If you think your business qualifies for this funding please contact Debra Moesch at 607-254-2802 (dlm8@cornell.edu)

Summer Internships provide entrepreneurial students with opportunities to gain essential experience in small to mid-sized businesses. CCMR and Entrepreneurship at Cornell are collaborating to offer student internship and industry partnership to NYS company partners.

The CCMR will provide 20% of matching funds to up to 5 internships not to exceed $1,000 per internship to companies developing products or technologies related to materials. Manufacturing and R&D NYS small to mid-sized businesses from the following industry sectors are eligible: materials, chemistry, energy, pharmaceuticals, food, and textile.

Students from the following departments and colleges are eligible: College of Engineering, and Departments of Fiber Science and Apparel Design, Chemistry and Chemical Biology, Physics, applied Physics, and Food Science.

Steps for Company Participant

We’re excited to announce we will be leveraging a new platform to streamline our internship program and increase efficiency.

While some effort will be required initially, the system will start saving time and effort after this one-time setup. Additional ways companies will benefit moving forward include:

  • Be able to directly post opportunities/roles you’re looking to fill
  • Collect resumes and manage statuses of applicants
  • Access to more student candidates, especially over long-run as the platform continues to grow from its 2,000+ Cornellians userbase

To begin, here are the three easy steps to take:

1) Create a free StartupTree account on http://cornell.startuptree.co
– You’re encouraged to complete your profile as much as possible including adding a profile photo and bio.
– If you already have an account you can skip this step.

2) “Add Venture” using the button on the right sidebar
– As you add your venture, make sure to tag “EaC Summer Internship 2018 – Companies”

3) Submit Application through the “Company Application” link found on this page.

After you have submitted the application, we will follow up with next step.

Again, you will only have to create your Venture profile a single time. All subsequent years, you will be able to use the same profile and skip steps 1 and 2.

If you need any assistance during the profile creation process please email support@startuptree.co with any questions related to the platform.

We look forward to having you benefit from our new system!
