About Our Sponsor
Thanks to the generosity of the ECenter's friends and sponsors, each summer up to fifteen UNH Durham students from any college or major can get hands-on experience working at a start-up company. Our sponsors are generous UNH alumni donors. Priority is 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. Our internship program provides that experience. This opportunity is open to freshmen, sophomores, and juniors.
What Our Students and Start-Ups Have To Say
Having the chance to work at a start-up company is rare and I took full advantage of the opportunity. I was able to see start-up culture and what goes into developing a successful company. I think every UNH student should apply for the Paid Student Internship at a Start-ups Program!
Jessie DeLouis ’21, intern at YouScheduler
Having an intern from UNH has been fantastic! She is a real go-getter and has jumped in with us on all operations. We are loving having her as a part of our summer team!

Internships provide real world experience—a key factor employers look for when hiring. Internships encourage you to apply your class knowledge to solve problems and contribute to an organization, develop transferable skills that you can use to compete for entry-level jobs, and expand your professional network. There is no substitute for experience, so the more experience you seek out through informational interviews, job shadowing, and internships, the more prepared you will be to compete for the jobs you want after graduation.
