TAG-Ed High School Summer Internship Program
Work on a STEM project at one of over 150 participating Georgia companies! The internships are paid, and the experience is priceless.
The TAG-Ed Summer Internship Program was created to give competitive students real world STEM experience with companies in metro Atlanta and the state of Georgia. The internship Program is a 5 week experience where students work to develop their professional aptitude while building their technical abilities. By working on relevant projects, students leave the program with tangible work experience, invaluable connections, and a passion to pursue a career in the STEM field. TAG-Ed remains committed to recruiting top talent as this program continues to be one of the most selective and highly competitive summer opportunities. Interested students are advised to take time to preview the application before submitting to ensure they are putting time and effort into their application. We also offer a Career Readiness Series to teach students soft skills and enhance their professional image. Because we believe in the value of this information, attending one of these workshops represents a BADGE for participating in TAG-Ed’s 2019 High School Internship Program.
