SciTechsperience: A Local Funding Option for Internships

The Northland is full of college students who would like to pursue internships and organizations that would like to create internship programs. One of the main obstacles both groups face is a lack of funding and financial support. SciTechsperience exists to fill that need.

Available to students in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) disciplines, SciTechsperience is a free grant program that covers up to 50% of an intern’s wages.

Eligible Employers:

  • For-profit organizations within MN that have 250 or fewer FTEs worldwide
  • Offer a STEM related internship
  • Fall into a variety of industries including but not limited to: Aerospace, Agriculture, Biotech, Engineering, IT, Healthcare, Mining or Manufacturing.

Minnesota is going to need over 150,000 skilled STEM workers by 2020 in order to keep up with retiring baby boomers, an aging overall population, and advances in technology. To find out more about SciTechsperience and how the program is helping the state prepare the workforce for the future, visit their website at
