The Ohio Tech Internship has three main goals:

  • Increase the interest of underserved minority and rural student populations in entrepreneurship through education and internship opportunities.
  • Provide early-stage technology companies with talent to help them grow and prosper.
  • Foster a greater connection between Ohio's higher education system and its entrepreneurial technology economy.


The Ohio Tech Internship connects motivated college students with internship opportunities in early-stage technology companies across Ohio. The Program provides eligible businesses with up to $10,000 to support each internship position, and assists in identifying potential intern candidates.
