The Reiman Scholars in Entrepreneurship is a premier experience-based learning program. Demonstrate a strong interest in working in an entrepreneurial environment and you can intern with startups and new ventures in various fields. Internships take place at the ever-expanding, ISU Research Park.
The Reiman Scholars in Entrepreneurship is an experience-based learning program. The program was initially funded in 1997 by a grant from the Kauffman Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership and was later endorsed with a significant gift from Roy and Bobbi Reiman in 1999.
Internships involve a short training period with Center staff and partner organizations to learn basic skills in:
Financing a Business and Cash Flow
Following a brief training, interns are placed in actual start-up companies for the internship experience. In the start-up company, interns are exposed to a broad range of company management, product development, and marketing aspects of the business.
Interns are required to prepare a written report and give an oral presentation at a closing program outlining the lessons learned and experiences gained during the internship experience at a closing program.
Fall and spring interns work a minimum of 10 and up to 20 hours per week and complete 160 hours of service during the employment period.
Summer interns work 40 hours per week and complete 400 hours of service during the employment period.
Interns become employees of the ISU Pappajohn Center and are paid bi-monthly throughout the course of the program.
