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.

Applying is easy, students and company application links are now open!

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
