Commonwealth STEM Industry Internship Program (CSIIP)
The Shenandoah Valley Technology Council is a partner in a state-wide internship initiative that can directly address your science, technology and engineering workforce needs and help to enhance your future STEM workforce.
The program is the Commonwealth STEM Industry Internship Program (CSIIP) — a service provided by the Virginia Space Grant Consortium and is available to companies and student free of charge. It is funded by the Virginian General Assembly and supported by the Virginia Governor's office.
This program offers a one-stop, centralized, online internship application system that provides Virginia undergraduate STEM majors the ability to search and apply for STEM-related (summer/fall/spring) internship opportunites with participarting Virginia-based companies that can search the database of prescreened student applications for specific skills, experience, educational background, interests, desired work location to find the best possible candiddates for their paid internships. Companies can select students, make offers and employ interns directly.
I encourage you to visit the CSIIP website to learn more and to become a company partner: http://csiip.spacegrant.org.
After you register and enter your internship opportunities, click on the “Internship Search” icon on your company’s CSIIP portal to see how your internship opportunities will be displayed to students searching for internships in various technology council-mapped geographic areas.
We will be monitoring the CSIIP website for company registrations and internship postings for our tech council region. We hope you will seriously consider this outstanding opportunity and participate such that the Shenandoah Valley and the SVTC are well represented as a program partner.
