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, CvilleBioHub offers local companies matching dollars to support local internships. CvilleBioHub also assists with matching interested talent with the needs of companies. 

There are limited spots available for funding. If interested for our second internship cohort in 2021, please email with interest and a description of the roles and skill sets you are seeking. 


For prospective interns:
The 2021 Summer Cohort application window is now open, and CvilleBioHub will be accepting applications through the end of February 2021.  Email with an indication of interest, companies of interest and a resume and cover letter.

CHIP internships offer a 10-week paid industry experience from June – August, with educational programming throughout the Summer and culminating in a Final Project Showcase.
