But for your convenience, below I am going to list some popular high school software engineer internships I know of that students in many states can apply for:

  • One popular high school software engineer internship is Research Science Institute at MIT https://www.cee.org/programs/research-science-institute. This program for high school juniors is extremely competitive and looks extremely good on college applications. You can live in any state to apply to this program. It is unpaid, however.
  • More popular high school software engineer internships include the NASA high school internships. These are only for high school students who live in certain states, however. Specifically, these internships are usually only offered to students living in Maryland, Virginia, New York, and West Virginia. You can apply for this internship here: https://intern.nasa.gov/. These programs on this website are paid.
  • Another popular high school software engineer internship that you can apply for your senior year of high school is called the Amazon Future Engineer scholarship + internship. This opportunity offered by Amazon gives you a $40,000 scholarship ($10,000 for each of the 4 years of high school) and a programming internship at Amazon after your freshman year of college. Even though this is not a high school Amazon internship, you would be applying for this opportunity during the fall of your senior year of high school. I actually won this scholarship + internship. You can read my post on how I won the internship here (including my stats, ec’s, and essays). You can apply for the program here: https://www.amazonfutureengineer.com/scholarship
  • Another popular high school software engineer internship is called Google CSSI. You get paid about $1,000 to learn computer science topics with Google engineers. You can read more about Google CSSI in my post here.
  • If you are a high schooler in Illinois, Fermilab offers three different high school software engineer internships: https://internships.fnal.gov/high-school-student-programs . For Chicago high schoolers specifically, UChicago offers the CDAC program which is a computer science research program for students who are high school freshmen and above. There is also Chance UIC Digital Scholars, which isn’t really a high school software engineer internship and you’re not paid for it, but they teach you about computer science at UIC.
