Purdue’s Burton D. Morgan Center for Entrepreneurship and Discovery Learning Research Center are pleased to announce the expansion of the Interns for Entrepreneurship (IfE) program. With support from the Burton D. Morgan Foundation, IfE will expand outside Indiana by selecting fifteen Purdue upperclassmen as 2012 Burton D Morgan Interns, to be matched with high-tech startup companies in Northeast Ohio.
Started in 2004, the Interns for Entrepreneurship program enhances student learning by facilitating practical hands-on experiences for all majors. Interns gain firsthand understanding of entrepreneurship along with enhanced technical, professional, and communication skills.
IfE interns drive economic development by fueling company growth through their contributions of energy, hard work, ideas, and expertise.
Purdue undergraduates from all majors are invited to apply. To qualify for participation, students must have a GPA of at least 2.8 and 60 or more credits. Company participants must be entrepreneurial, for-profit high-tech companies in Indiana or Northeast Ohio that can provide student interns with high-quality entrepreneurial experiences. Further, companies must demonstrate the potential to grow in a manner that would allow them to hire additional full-time college-educated employees in the near future. Although most participating companies are younger than 10 years, qualified spin-offs from larger existing companies are also encouraged to apply.
Interns for Entrepreneurship is Purdue's high-tech startup company internship program. We currently offer opportunities in Indiana and Northeast Ohio.
