In 2022, Ben Franklin Northeast launched the New Generation Tech Internship Program to continue to enhance our region’s entrepreneurial diversity and support the creation of generational wealth.

This program connects historically underrepresented students to our wide network of client companies in the Northeastern Pennsylvania region by providing paid internships to undergraduate and graduate college/university students. Ben Franklin Northeast provides $5,000 grants to clients to fund internships during the Summer Semester.

Eligible students have one or more of the following affiliations:

  • Students of Color (students who identify as Black, African American, Asian, South Asian, Middle Eastern, Pacific Islander, Latinx, Chicanx, Native American, and multiracial)
  • Female-identifying Students
