True Entrepreneur Corps (TEC) Fellowships, a program of True Ventures, bring undergraduates from across the U.S. to the San Francisco Bay area each summer to work in paid internships with selected companies in order to learn firsthand what it’s like to work at a startup.

TEC Fellows receive a $5,000 stipend on completing their internships.  In addition, fellows participate in a weekly speaker series at the True Ventures offices in San Francisco, where they participate in focused discussions with company founders, investors, and others from the company’s organizational network.  Since the program’s establishment in  2009, many fellows have also gone on to work with their respective companies after the program’s conclusion.

Applicants must be current college sophomores and juniors and be eligible to work in the U.S.  The program encourages applications from students from all majors and educational interests, provided they are smart, hard working, and passionate about technology and entrepreneurship.
