NYC Turing Fellowship


University of Waterloo students are invited to apply to the third annual NYC Turing Fellowship, a program that matches outstanding computer science and engineering students (undergraduates and graduates) with paid summer internships at leading NYC startups.

The program provides exposure to the rapidly growing NYC ecosystem and the opportunity to meet with some of the best entrepreneurs, founders, and technologists in the country.

Students also benefit from a summer curriculum consisting of networking and mentoring events (last year included: Yankees Game, MoMA tour, and “Tech Talks” with Dennis Crowley of Foursquare and Esther Dyson).

Details:
Participating startups include bit.ly, ZocDoc, SecondMarket, Knewton, and more.
We are now accepting applications on a rolling basis. The final deadline is February 8th but we strongly encourage students to apply early. 
A group of up to 45 Semi-Finalists will be invited to NYC on Saturday, March 2nd (expenses paid) to interview with participating startups at the iconic New York Times Building. From those 45 Semi-Finalists roughly 30 will be offered Fellowships.
A $5,000 fellowship prize is awarded upon completion of the program.
