Entry Point Partners to Source STEM Interns

Entry Point has been helping companies, federal agencies, and university research centers to recruit talented science and engineering students with disabilities since 1996.

Entry Point recruits and screens undergraduate and graduate student internship candidates. We really know our students.  We know their strengths, skills, and aspirations; we strive to make sure they have the maturity level to succeed in your workplace.

The Entry Point vetting process is exhaustive. We provide you with a portfolio for each prospective intern.  Since we know the students and have already had conversations about disclosure, relocation, and accommodations, you will only receive candidates that fit your needs.  We work with your team to help candidates navigate your application and interview process.

The results are students, matched to your specific needs, who are skilled, driven and ready to succeed in your internship program.
