The MassTech Intern Partnership
Where tomorrow's innovators connect with today's job creators
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has joined with MassTech Collaborative to create the Mass Tech Intern Partnership to connect talented college students and recent college graduates to internships in the state's dynamic technology sector. The program works in close collaboration with leading universities, technology councils, and other tech sector organizations in Massachusetts to recruit students and companies.
The Intern Partnership maintains a database of MA college students interested in tech sector internships and provides matching grants to eligible tech companies to partially reimburse intern stipends. The program accepts applications on a rolling basis.
