Applications for the 2019 Akamai Internship Program are now open. Akamai offers Hawaii college students the opportunity to gain hands-on work experience at an observatory, company or science/tech facility in Hawaii. The eight-week summer program offers placements for both community college and four-year university students in a variety of majors. Recent graduates are also eligible.

Interns are matched to a project and mentor according to their interests. They also receive coaching on communication skills and present their final work at a symposium. The internship includes a stipend and housing (if needed), as well as any interisland travel costs.

To apply, students must be at least 18 years old and a resident of Hawaii. The deadline to apply is Feb. 14, 2019. Learn more and apply at:
