Apply for paid internships!

The Deluxe E-ternship Program provides undergraduate students with the opportunity to become members of high-potential entrepreneurial teams. At the same time, the program provides early-stage companies with student resources for cross-functional projects. Projects can range from market research to evaluation of new products/services/markets to business planning to support for the launch of a new venture.

The internships are designed to test the student's interest and capability in an early-stage venture, gain first-hand exposure to an entrepreneur as they build their business, and apply the entrepreneurship coursework in a real-world environment. Students will work at least 165 hours during the semester (10-15 hours per week).

To apply, send an email to Michaela Dean at mjorr@umn.edu with the subject line Deluxe E-ternship Program - 2021 Spring Semester, and attach a cover letter, your resume, and a copy of your unofficial University of Minnesota transcript. The cover letter must specify:
  • How you will benefit from this opportunity
  • Type of project(s) you are most interested in
  • Type of business or industry you are most interested in
  • Your qualifications to be a successful candidate
Selection will be based upon demonstrated passion for entrepreneurship, leadership skills, and academic record. Students participating in the entrepreneurial programs and curriculum will receive preference.

Selected students must attend a mandatory program Zoom meeting and commit to dedicating 10-15 hours per week to the program during spring semester, January-April.

The program is open to all University of Minnesota undergraduate students. All internships will be remote only for fall semester.

The application deadline is Friday, Nov. 20, 2020
