What is Intern Scale? Is it free?

Intern Scale matches top US students with summer internships at leading startups. We are like a 'common application' for startup summer internships. We are totally free for students; there is no cost.

Am I eligible?

We prefer applicants who are 3rd or 4th year undergraduate students, but if you are a 1st or 2nd-year student who is passionate about startups, please apply. We also welcome MBA applicants.

When are applications due?

We accept online applications on a rolling basis until late April. We encourage you to apply as soon as possible because we have limited internship openings. Expect to hear back within 5 days of applying.

What type of internships?

Software & data science

Many of our summer internships are in software engineering & data science roles. We look for students with a solid background in languages like Python, Java, Javascript, C, and more.

Marketing, design, UX

Marketing, design, and growth internships are very common in our startup portfolio as well. We look for students with a strong interest in marketing careers.

Sales & BD

Many of the fastest growing startups are looking for sharp, fast-learning sales interns. We look for students who are resilient, quick learners, and good communicators.

Finance, ops, & more

We have fewer finance, operations, and other internships, but if this is your area of interest, please apply! We look for detail-oriented students with good quantitative skills.

Our online application takes 2 minutes.

What Intern Scale employers say

Get started

“I highly recommend Intern Scale.”

Polywork is a venture-backed tech startup in NYC, and we have very high standards for recruiting and hiring. Intern Scalewas able to quickly introduce three summer intern candidates from top schools and we hired two of them. I highly recommend Intern Scale to any fast-growing startup who is looking for amazing interns.

“Definitely worth considering!”

Intern Scale was easy to work with and quickly identified several excellent intern candidates for our growing team in Austin. It was significantly easier to hire an intern through Intern Scale than recruit ourselves. Definitely worth considering!

About Intern Scale

Intern Scale was founded during COVID-19 in New York City. We are pioneering "internships-as-a-service," helping seed to Series F startups launch competitive, well-run internship programs, fast. Students around the United States have told us the intern application process is broken, and that finding internships with startups is extremely difficult. Startups tell us they don't offer internships because of the hassle involved. We set out to solve both problems at once.
