College Students: Apply for Summer Internships at Ohio’s Top Tech Companies

(COLUMBUS, Ohio) – The Ohio Department of Development invites college students with a variety of backgrounds and an interest in technology to apply for an internship. The Ohio Third Frontier, a Development program, is now accepting applications for the College Technology Internship Program through which students can gain experience at some of Ohio’s most innovative companies starting at a competitive rate of $15 per hour.

“This program gives students—the next generation of Ohioans— the opportunity to work in our most innovative fields and gain experience with jobs in our most influential, tech-focused industries,” said Lydia Mihalik, director of the Ohio Department of Development. “We’re creating a pipeline of diverse talent that will lead the charge in shaping the marketplace of the future. ”

Intern experience encompasses all areas of study, ranging from marketing and design, to engineering, mathematics, and software development. Interns have helped companies create mobile apps and websites, develop social media platforms, conduct market research, develop new Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality technologies, and implement new software to modernize operations, accounting and enhance cybersecurity.

Through 13 rounds of the program, 902 interns have been hired. Of those, 82 percent have been African American, Asian, Hispanic, other ethnicities, and white females. While diverse applicants are encouraged to apply, all college students interested in technology are welcome.

 Non-Ohio residents attending school in Ohio are encouraged to apply, and Ohio residents attending college anywhere in the United States are also eligible.

Internships for this round can occur between May 1 and Oct. 31, 2024. Student applications are open through Feb. 26.

The program is also accepting company applications through March 1. The Ohio Third Frontier will reimburse companies for two-thirds of an intern’s wages up to $7,500. Companies can hire up to 10 interns per round and be reimbursed up to $75,000.
