Skandalaris summer internship applications open Jan. 1

The Skandalaris Center offers a Summer Entrepreneurial Internship Program to undergraduate students in all majors.

About the program

Students will intern at an early-stage startup in the St. Louis area. But the paid, 10-week program is more than just an internship. It is an intensive introduction to the startup, entrepreneurship and innovation ecosystem in St. Louis. Interns will work at their internship most of the week, then each Wednesday afternoon will participate in special programming such as tours of entrepreneurial communities, networking events and panel discussions. Lunch is provided at most Wednesday events.

“My internship experience altered my view of what it takes to survive as an entrepreneur. It also helped me focus my career search and helped me understand what I want to do after school. It was a truly valuable experience.”

Who is eligible

This program is open to undergraduate students in all majors. Students must be returning to campus for at least one semester of undergraduate study to qualify for this program.

International Students

International students are welcome. If you are an international student and are matched for the program, you must register for OPT through OISS.

Applications for the Summer 2019 program opened January 1. Applications close Feb. 10 at 11:45pm.
