Virginia STEM Internships | CSIPP | Free Of Charge

Virginia STEM internships are offered through the  Commonwealth STEM Industry Internship Program (CSIIP) — a service provided by the Virginia Space Grant Consortium and available to companies and students free of charge.  It is funded by the Virginian General Assembly and supported by the Virginia Governor’s office.

This program offers a one-stop, centralized, online internship application system that provides Virginia undergraduate STEM majors the ability to search and apply for STEM internship (for summer/fall/spring) opportunities with participating Virginia-based companies that can search the database of prescreened student applications for specific skills, experience, educational background, interests, desired work location to find the best possible candidates for their paid internships.  Companies can select students, make offers and employ interns directly.

BECOME A PARTNER, HELP YOUR BUSINESS

Companies are encouraged to visit the CSIIP website , learn more, and become a company partner. Utilizing this tool will allow you to showcase your STEM internships to students in a fast, easy way.

After you register and enter your internship opportunities, click on the “Internship Search” icon on your company’s CSIIP portal to see how your internship opportunities will be displayed to students searching for internships in various technology council-mapped geographic areas.

CSIIP will monitor the CSIIP website for company registrations and internship postings for this tech council’s region.  We hope you will seriously consider this outstanding opportunity and participate.
