The Maryland Technology Internship Program (MTIP) helps Maryland retain top talent by increasing the number of paid technical internships offered in the state. Funded by the State of Maryland, the program offers financial assistance to technology-based businesses, as well as state and local agencies, to hire more interns. 

Internship funding is now available to technology-based businesses and state and local agencies offering paid internships.  Preference will be given to employers seeking interns to fill technical and creative roles that require science, technology, engineering, and/or math (STEM) skills.  The Maryland Technology Internship Program can reimburse employers for up to 50% of an intern’s wage and up to $3,000 annually per intern ($1,800 for the first semester and $1,200 for subsequent semester).

If you just hired an intern or are recruiting candidates, be sure to review the program details and apply.  Questions about the MTIP? Please contact Annie Weinschenk at anniew@umbc.edu or 410.455.8783.
