Now is the perfect time to find your STEM intern!


February 23, 2022

Since its launch in February 2012, the SciTech Internship Program has helped over 2,300 college STEM interns connect with 555 companies in 142 cities state-wide. This month, SciTech turns 10 and is celebrating the people and companies who've made the program such a success. Check out these inspiring stories and videos here.

Designed to build and retain Minnesota's STEM workforce, especially with women and students of color, SciTech doubles as a free resource for both employers and students. Minnesota small businesses get help finding talent and funding internships with a wage reimbursement covering up to $2,500 per intern. In turn, college students pursuing a STEM degree can use SciTech to find paid internships and gain valuable hands-on industry experience.

Minnesota for-profit companies with fewer than 250 employees worldwide and Minnesota students who are halfway through a STEM degree and in good academic standing are encouraged to participate.

Funding Available in 2022

More than 160 wage matches are still available for spring and summer internships on a first come, first hire basis. Applications and full eligibility requirements are available at

SciTech is funded by the Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) and housed at the Minnesota Technology Association (MnTech). Questions about the program? Contact Becky Siekmeier, Program Director at
