Good for students. Good for you.Good for the future of tech.

We founded the MLH Fellowship when students started losing their internships due to COVID-19 fallout. Companies struggled to figure out how to manage interns remotely, budgets were constantly in flux, and internal organizers were burned out. The MLH Fellowship connects our learning community to our enterprise partners by offering to do the messy work: vetting, coaching, dev setup.

We hope this work democratizes much-needed internships by empowering more companies to provide them, expanding access to coveted, yet ironically required, professional experience. For our partners, our student community is diverse, global, and shipping code. They not only fill the skills gap but bring a diversity of mind and experience to technical teams.
