Pittsburgh Summer Internship Program

Application deadline: Saturday, Feb. 1

Internships are more than career advancers. They are experiences that allow students to embrace causes they care most about or learn more about new opportunities. The Dietrich College Pittsburgh Summer Internship Program at Carnegie Mellon University is designed for undergraduates to engage and connect with organizations in the place CMU calls home: Pittsburgh. 

The student application has two parts. Students must first apply to be part of the Pittsburgh Summer Internship Program. If accepted, students will then be able to apply to positions available through the program via Handshake.

Students will work between 175-200 hours during summer 2020 and receive $3,000 of financial support to offset the costs of living in Pittsburgh over the summer.
