Students and businesses interested in taking part in the SciTechsperience internship program can now complete online applications at MHTA.org.

SciTechsperience is a key economic development initiative aimed at expanding Minnesota’s talented STEM workforce by providing hands-on experience for talented college students. The idea is to keep those students living and working in Minnesota once they graduate in order to strengthen and advance the state’s knowledge-based economy.
Qualified businesses can receive a dollar for dollar match up to 50% of an intern’s wages for a maximum of $2,500.
