Student Opportunites

Work experience is a vital part of education. Frederick CREST partners with local organizations to offer a variety of STEM-focused opportunities where students can build real-world skills and knowledge.

Want to know what a CREST opportunity is like? Watch the video to learn how one student benefitted from a unique internship at Mazzaroth Vineyard.

 

Frederick CREST has both internship and externship opportunities.

Internships

A period of on-the-job training under a designated employee mentor. These positions are paid at varying rates depending on the employer and may not be used to gain university credit. There may be other requirements imposed (e.g., a background check, NDA, etc.) depending on the employer.

Externships

A period of on-the-job training under a designated employee mentor that is credit bering and is part of a University educational program. The associated University needs to execute a Memorandum of Understanding with CREST prior to assigning an externship position to a given student. Because these are credit-bearing opportunities, they are unpaid.

Interns bring fresh skills, ideas, and perspectives to industry projects.

Who can apply?

Undergraduate/graduate students in a STEM field, recent graduates, employees or unemployed individuals with a STEM background and interest.

How long are they?

Internships/externships must be at least 8 weeks, but there is no limit on the length of tenure, which is negotiated on a case-by-case basis.

Available Spring – Winter 2018
