Summer Internships Are Happening Now!

This summer, Meritus has partnered with 24 organizations to offer over 40 paid internships to Meritus Scholars, more than doubling the number of internships from last year. The program was initially started through a partnership with the Young Presidents’ Organization, when Bay Area business leaders recognized the long-term benefits of internships to Scholars, employers, and the Bay Area community. Meritus’ program emphasizes high-quality, career-specific experiences that complement Scholars’ academic pursuits. This summer, Scholar-interns will participate in fields as diverse as healthcare, IT, government policy, marketing, finance, scientific research, social services, corporate public affairs, HR, and real estate at the following organizations:
