Sprinternships™ are designed for all students, but especially focused on women (cis and trans), nonbinary individuals, and minoritized groups who are freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors at FIU.


Sprinternships™ are Break Through Tech’s flagship micro-internship program.

These 3-week and immersive paid internships give undergraduate students work experience and a tech-industry résumé credential that can help them land their first summer tech internship. Sprinternships™ are customized by the organizations that host them, so each experience is unique.
