The St. Olaf Entrepreneurial Scholars program pairs rising sophomore, junior, and senior students with summer internships in entrepreneurial ventures. Through opportunities with entrepreneurial alumni, accelerators, incubators, and venture capital firms, students gain experience working in a startup environment while receiving mentorship and support from their host supervisor.
Host sites offer rigorous and challenging work, meaningful projects, and skill-building experiences to their interns. Students selected for the program should be self-motivated problem solvers with the ability to be flexible in a rapidly changing environment. The cohort will gather before, during, and after their internship for networking and reflection on their summer experience. Thanks to a generous gift from our entrepreneurial alumni, participants will receive $4000 in funding for their full-time, 8-10 week internship. Start and end dates are negotiated between the selected student and their supervisor. Housing is not provided for the program.
Summer 2020 internship sites will be announced on a rolling basis throughout spring semester. The 10 new internships will be posted on Handshake. Search “St. Olaf entrepreneurship cohort program” to see all applications.
