Internships

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.

TCO seeks energetic self-starters to join the team as part-time interns. The candidates should have interest in learning more about processes related to technology commercialization and intellectual property marketing. Business, engineering or life sciences-related majors are preferred. Experience communicating technology to lay audiences would be a plus. Strong attention to detail is required. Ability to maintain confidentiality of all work-related information is mandatory.
