Q: How do I apply?
A: Please visit our internship jobs board to view the open opportunities. You can apply to the positions of interest directly through the postings.
Q: Are these internships paid?
A: Yes, all opportunities through this program are paid. The exact wage amount is at the discretion of the hiring startup.
Q: When is this program available?
A: This program is accessible year-round. While many startups look for full-time talent during the summer months, many also need part-time interns during the academic year. All opportunities will be posted to our jobs board, as they are available. Because there is less demand during the academic year, there will not be a program cohort. However, students will still have access to 1:1 mentoring and Rev1 resources, if desired. Please contact Larissa Wess, Intern and Fellows Programs Manager, if you have questions.
Q: Is this program only available during the fall?
A: No, this program is accessible year-round. Many startups look for part-time interns during the academic year and those opportunities will be posted to our jobs board, as they are available. Because there is less demand, there will not be a program cohort during the academic year internships. However, students will still have access to 1:1 mentoring and Rev1 resources, if desired. Please contact Larissa Wess, Intern and Fellows Programs Manager, if you have questions.
Q: By participating in this program, will I be an intern for Rev1 Ventures?
A: No. Rev1 Ventures is sponsoring this program on behalf of the startups we work with. While you will have access to Rev1 team members and resources, your direct work and internship experience will be with the startup that hired you.
Q: I have more questions, who should I contact?
A: Please contact Larissa Wess, Intern and Fellows Programs Manager, with any further questions related to this program.
