Top Minority Internships

Top Minority Internships for High School, Undergraduate, and Graduate Students

Minority internships are designed to provide the perfect opportunity for minority students to gain real world job experience and begin their journey towards their career. It is to the advantage of interns to make the best of their internship as well as apply for as many internships as possible every year.

In the end, statistics show that after graduation, students with an established internship record are more likely to officially enter their career with higher salaries and are more prepared to be successful in their employment than students who choose not to intern at all.

Below is a list of the top 2014, recently updated for 2016, minority internships:
