NDSGC-sponsored industry internships allow college students to complete a research project at a STEM-relevant company or laboratory to help develop STEM skillsets. Specific qualities that make a good industry partnership include, but are not limited to, real-world STEM experiences, hands-on and experiential learning, diverse perspectives, and an inclusive and equitable environment. These internships do not involve NASA centers (see NASA Internships for that funding opportunity).
Students will work directly with research mentors to determine the appropriate time to spend on the project (total weeks, total hours per week). Stipends are unique to each project and will follow the hourly rates as defined at the undergraduate level and graduate levels here:
- Undergraduate Students: $18/hr
- Graduate Students: $23/hr
- U.S. Citizen
- Minimum GPA of 3.0
- Student enrolled at an NDSGC affiliate college or university
How to Apply
Students are encouraged to reach out to the NDSGC if they know which company or laboratory they wish to intern with. Students may talk to the industry partner on their own, but will be required to apply with the NDSGC before solidifying any appointments if they want to be considered for NDSGC funding. We encourage all students to start a conversation with the NDSGC team first and see how we can finalize positions with an industry partner.
If you are employed at a STEM-relevant company and would like to work with a qualified and fully-funded North Dakota student intern, please reach out to the NDSGC team.
