Internships and Scholarships
TAG has partnered with over 150 companies to offer competitive five week internships. By registering and applying, students will receive resource information from TAG. Even if they are not successful in obtaining an internship, they can instead attend a four week free coding camp (https://www.tagedonline.org/futureready-coding-camp/). More information can be found at https://www.tagedonline.org/programs/tag-ed-summer-internship-program/. Through these internships, students are eligible for a number of Horizon Awards, including a scholarship.
