The Diversity and Inclusion Technology Internship Program is an opportunity to get hands-on experience in some of Ohio’s most innovative companies. We’re placing highly-motivated college students at early-stage technology companies or companies with a technological need. Companies across Ohio have an opportunity to get great talent to help them grow, with budding engineers, researchers, market analysts, designers, marketers and others.

We’re matching students and companies for internships for this summer and fall, from June 1, 2018 through December 31, 2018. They can be either three or six-month internships.
