Congress seeks entrepreneurship interns for summer 2017

The National Council of Entrepreneurial Tech Transfer (NCET2) has developed, along with some Congressional staffers, a new University/College Entrepreneur Congressional Intern Program to start in the summer of 2017. This eight-week program places exceptional university and college students in Senate and House of Representatives offices to work on issues dealing with entrepreneurship and startups.

The program also includes meetings with senior federal administration officials, serial entrepreneurs, startups, venture capitalists, angel investors and corporate venture groups to increase the student's professional network during the internship and after, when they return to campus to share their experiences and networks with students, researchers, faculty and alumni. In the long term, it is expected that these students will provide entrepreneurship leadership in public service, academia and the private sector throughout their careers.  

Students must be currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate degree program and have at least one year remaining in their degree program after completion of the internship. 

Applications will be accepted through Jan. 30 and selected students will be notified by the end of February. Visit the NCET2 website for more information and to download an application.
