In response to many students experiencing delays or disruptions to summer jobs and internships, the Veale Institute for Entrepreneurship and Post-Graduate Planning & Experiential Education have teamed up to create the Remote Entrepreneurship Project (REP) Program, offering students the opportunity to work on projects for local startups during the summer months.
In addition to matching with a startup, each student accepted to the program will receive a stipend of $500. All of the work for these projects will be conducted remotely and while it has not been finalized, the Veale Institute anticipates the projects will require a minimum of 10 hours of work per week for about six weeks.
Students who are looking for an opportunity to build their resumes and network should apply online by May 14 at 11:59 p.m.
As the Veale Institute continues to build the REP Program and match students with companies, it also is seeking interested start-ups that have a need for remote project work. Local businesses that are interested in mentoring a CWRU student through a summer project should apply to be matched with a student.
