NeuroDiversity in Tech Summer Internship Program 2024

Applications will be considered through March 15, 2024 or whenever the positions are filled.

The NeuroDiversity in Tech Summer Internship program engages a group of 15 to 25 individuals, each year, who are underrepresented in the tech workforce–individuals with developmental disorders, specifically autism spectrum disorders.

Over the course of 9 weeks (June 24 through August 23), the interns will work in teams as programmers, project managers, artists, and designers with the aid of a coach to develop an educational or research-based video game.

They will develop their game from concept to production by fostering a stakeholder relationship with researchers. At the end of the program, interns present their achievements to the community, including industry partners and advocates, during a showcase event.
