CHIP Internship Program

CHIP is Charlottesville’s one and only internship program connecting local higher education institutions and programs with local biotechnology companies to provide industry-side experiences.  The goal of CHIP is to build and celebrate community, and the program offers a structured and engaging experience for interns. Through community partnerships and our own network, we match local candidates to local companies.


For participating companies:
As part of our workforce initiative to attract, develop and retain top talent within the region, Charlottesville BioHub assists you with matching interested local talent with the needs of your company. We then provide your interns with structure and programming to amplify their experience. Charlottesville BioHub also anticipates matching dollars to support your local internships.

For prospective interns:
CHIP internships offer a 10-week paid industry experience from June – August, with a limited series of educational programming and networking throughout the Summer culminating in a Final Project Showcase. This opportunity is open to students at all levels of study who are Charlottesville area residents or attending an area college.

The 2022 Summer Cohort application window is now closed.
