Those who attend at minimum of 3 out of the 5 scheduled workshops are eligible to apply for a paid summer internship at a renowned IT company in Upper Austrian during the summer of 2022. It is, however, up to the individual companies to decide which intern will be accepted. Participation in the program does not automatically guarantee an internship position.
