The participating interns are undergraduate sophomores, juniors or seniors of the residential campus of Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion, Indiana.

Over 40 start-up employers expressed interest and/or applied for paid interns, and 16 start-ups were selected based primarily on their projected ability to provide meaningful work for interns and the potential for full-time hire past the internship period.

The paid internship program is an initiative of the “Accelerate Indiana” Lilly Endowment grant recently awarded to IWU.

Applications for paid interns for the spring semester will be available October 1 for IWU students and Indiana start-up employers.
