Mav Micros Internship Program


What is a Micro-Internship?

Micro-internships are short-term, paid, professional assignments that are similar to those given to new hires or interns. Often, these projects require 20-40 hours of total work across 2-4 weeks and can be completed remotely. They are posted on a rolling basis and can be applied to year-round.

Who is Eligible for Micro-Internships?

Mav Micros are open to all students, including international students. If you are an international student and are interested in applying for micro-internships, please contact the Office of International Education for more information regarding the Optional Practical Training (OPT) and Curricular Practical Training (CPT) approval process.
