The Technology Commercialization Office (TCO) is always interested in speaking with students interested in working with us. We fill vacancies on an as-needed basis.
We generally recruit two Federal Work Study (FWS) students from the George Washington University (GW) in August of each year and maintain 2-4 interns on staff throughout the year.
