Entry Point - for Students

Intern Through Entry Point!


Internships are often pathways to successful careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

We want to offer you the chance to “test drive” your interests and contribute your unique perspectives and problem solving skills in a professional environment. You will also have opportunities to learn to more effectively contribute your knowledge and leadership,build self-confidence, and become more aware of your goals and strengths.

A successful internship can provide you with the experience of:

  • Working with a top-rated company or agency.
  • Engaging in co-ops or research opportunities in your specific field of interest.
  • Showcasing your skills in a real working environment.
  • Building a broad professional network.

Entry Point! has established partnerships with a variety of Fortune 500 companies, university research settings and government agencies throughout the country that offer paid,10-to-12-week internships. The partners help clarify your career goals and strengthen your skills. Our partners pay stipends and provide assistive technology and other reasonable accommodations. Travel funds and recommendations for accessible housing and transportation may also be provided to students who are relocating for the summer.

In addition to problem-solving skills, Entry Point! partners are looking for strong technical and communication skills. They understand that teamwork and a positive attitude are critical for survival in today’s global market. If you are selected for an internship, you will be given an assignment that complements your major and builds upon your talents.


Will this opportunity focus on my disability?


We inquire about your disability on our application as a means of confirming your eligibility to participate in Entry Point! This information will not be shared with any of our partners, unless we have permission from you.


If you need accommodations for an interview, it is probably useful to let the interviewer know so he or she can make the arrangements that you are requesting. If you accept a position, it is useful to let your prospective manager or mentor know what accommodations you will need on the job. If you do not need accommodations, it is not necessary to disclose anything, unless you think it will be helpful.
