Internship Program


For the 6th year in a row, MD MEP is thrilled to announce the return of the Manufacturing Internship Program! MD MEP’s Internship Program is designed to support Maryland manufacturers with the cost of hiring, onboarding and training summer interns. Manufacturing internships are a critical step in recruiting the next generation of talent to the industry and MD MEP is committed to supporting these opportunities.
