Given our access to an extraordinary pool of STEM talent within the African diaspora, there were several companies interested in featuring their internship opportunities on the AIA scholarship website. The goal of the opportunities below is to connect African and African-American engineering students in the United States with short-term engineering, tech and business opportunities in Nigeria or with U.S. based, Nigerian-owned companies. These internships are available year-round. You must be a Black undergraduate or graduate STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering or Math) student studying in the United States to apply.
