Projects will be approximately 6 to 8 weeks in duration and consist of about 5 to 10 hours per week. All work will be conducted remotely.

We will screen applications and appropriately match students based on the submitted project descriptions and student skills, areas of interest and submitted resumes. Potential candidates will be sent to companies for an interview. You will then confirm if you would like to move forward with that company and project.

Students who are matched and accepted into the program will register for practicum (fee waived), be required to do three blog posts on LinkedIn reflecting on their experience, complete a final survey, and will then receive a $500 stipend for completing the program. Please note, practicum is for undergraduates only, but graduate students can still participate in the program.
