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 the Patten Family Foundation

Due to the generosity of Harry Patten ('58) and the Patten Family Foundation, up to ten (10) 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. 

 

Please review the following information for students and start-ups.

The final deadline to submit applications is February 14, 2020.
