Funding Limits and Terms

The Maryland Technology Internship Program can reimburse employers for up to 50% of an intern’s wage and up to $3,000 annually per intern ($1,800 for the first semester and $1,200 for subsequent semester).

Eligible employers are limited to a maximum of 6 awarded internships in a fiscal year (July 1 to June 30).  An employer may apply for no more than two funding awards for the same intern.

Funding will be reserved for an employer once an application is approved and an intern hire is reported.  If MTIP funding availability changes for any reason, employers will be notified immediately.

NOTE: Fifty percent of MTIP funding must be allocated to technology-based businesses with 150 or fewer employees.

MTIP 2019/2020 Deadlines
