The SEMI Foundation Internship Connection —A New Benefit For High Tech U Graduates Now In College

If you’re a High Tech U grad, currently in college and thinking about an internship — the SEMI Foundation may be able to help!

Because of the relationships we’ve built with numerous high tech companies over the years, we’re now able to identify and post exciting internship possibilities right here in the Student Section of the Foundation website. These companies are looking for students pursuing a degree in fields like math, science, engineering — and in some cases finance, marketing and other business related degrees.

This is great news, but even better news is that a number of the companies partnering with us have agreed to give High Tech U graduates extra consideration in their evaluation and selection process. Once again, it pays to be a High Tech U grad!

What Companies Are Looking For

In general intern candidates should be able to satisfy the criteria listed below. Don’t be discouraged if you don’t meet all of these criteria. Specific requirements vary by company.

  • Have a 3.0 GPA
  • Be in good standing at your university
  • Have completed your sophomore year (60+ hours)
  • Have at least one semester or quarter remaining
  • Be able to work full time during the internship

How To Apply For An Internship

If you’re interested in exploring one or more of the opportunities we’ve listed, visit the company’s website (we’ve listed it with each company) and follow their application procedure. Be sure to tell them you’re a SEMI Foundation High Tech U graduate.
