Small Company Internship Award

The Front Door connects small businesses to student interns in the STEM field through the MCRN Small Company Internship Award (SCIA) program. SCIA provides up to $3500 in matching funds to help small businesses (250 employees or less) located in Michigan hire Wayne State student interns for projects that are both beneficial to the company and academically relevant to the student. The Front Door directly administers this program, and will work with you to structure the internship, recruit and place interns, access funds and provide any other support needed throughout the internship period.
