Paid Student Internship at Start-Ups Program

Get hands-on experience working at a start-up company and help in the building process.


Sponsored by Harry Patten ('58)

Due to the generosity of Harry Patten ('58), four (4) UNH Durham students from any college or major can get hands-on experience working at a start-up company (priority given to UNH alumni start-ups). We recognize that not all students have the “a-ha" idea right away and/or they want to learn about and understand the inner workings of a start-up and help in the building process.  The Internship Program provides that experiential learning opportunity over a 10-week period. Students will receive a stipend of $4,000.

Students will receive a $4,000 stipend and will work at start-up host internship companies full-time (40 hours per week). Each year the list of companies in the program varies, so look for more information each year. There is a $450 application fee for start-ups selected for the four interns. 

Note: There may be an opportunity for an internship during a school year. If interested, please email e.center@unh.edu


Information about the summer 2018 internships will be posted in November. Please check back then for more details.
