Now in its second year, the expanded Commonwealth STEM Industry Internship Program (CSIIP) offers a no-cost, centralized, online application system that allows Virginia undergraduate college students majoring in STEM the ability to search and apply for paid, STEM-related internships with Virginia companies. Additionally, it provides Virginia companies with year-round free access to a large state-wide pool of qualified students for their internship opportunities. Students provide one comprehensive application that can be reviewed by companies throughout the state.
The 2014 program has been broadened to include internships in spring, summer and fall. In addition to full-time students, part-time students meeting certain criteria may now also use the program. Students must be STEM majors, at least a rising college sophomore at the time of internship, and attending a Virginia college or community or be a Virginia resident if attending an out-of-state school. The minimum grade point average for consideration is 2.7 on a four-point scale.
