Michigan STEM Forward

MEDC helps connect companies with interns in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.

Michigan STEM Forward is a statewide program of Michigan Economic Development Corporation that matches students attending Michigan colleges and universities with internship opportunities at the state’s leading innovative companies. Companies do not have to be in a specific industry, but all internships must be STEM-focused.

STEM Forward provides students meaningful career experience and promotes job retention in the state, while providing financial support to companies who hire these interns.
