We connect motivated high school students with mentors in pre-professional STEM internships.

ASE Internships are eight-week, full-time summer positions, designed by working professionals in science, technology, engineering, and math fields.


Since 1989, over 3,600 interns have joined Oregon’s most prestigious research institutions, government agencies, and companies. Mentors (working professionals) create opportunities for interns to participate in research, investigation, and experimentation at organizations throughout Oregon. Interns gain hands-on, practical experience of career paths while contributing to the work of mentors and their teams.


Past positions include:
•    Airborne Sensing Systems Integration and Testing (Rockwell Collins)
•    Chemical Analysis in a Modern Industrial Laboratory (ATI Wah Chang)
•    Cybersecurity Curriculum Development (Portland State University)
