What is The DEI Collective?
It’s an initiative launched at Johns Hopkins for students to get summer internships at companies who are committed to improving access to students from underrepresented communities.
Some things to keep in mind:
1. TAILOR YOUR RESUME FOR THIS ROLE: Companies will be selecting your resume based on how well it aligns to this job description. (It’s the #1 feedback we get from them – if it’s not immediately obvious how your experience/background is right for the role, it’s likely you’ll get overlooked.)
2. SHARE YOUR STORY: Submit a brief story that shares your interest in the DEI Collective and/or how your experiences reflect your commitment to diversity through one or more of the following attributes: first generation status, limited income, racial minority, LGBTQ+, international/national origin or disability/differently abled. Please submit this to the job posting in addition to your resume – you can attach it as an additional document and reuse it for each company and job you apply for. NOTE: Your story should not exceed one paragraph and please include your name, phone number, and email. Companies will skip your resume without this component.
3. KNOW YOUR DEADLINE: The deadline for you to apply to this job (and this program) is 11:55 pm on November 14th, no exceptions!
4. MAKE IT EASY FOR US TO CONTACT YOU: Please be sure your email notifications from Handshake are enabled. You will be receiving notifications about interviews directly from Handshake.
5. ATTEND THE ORIENTATION!: You’re encouraged to attend the DEI Collective Student Orientation. Last year, 88% of student attendees for our prep. sessions got at least 1 interview offer compared to the overall interview selection rate of 16%.
By submitting your resume, you agree:
1) To let us share your resume outside the bounds of this event with companies who are hiring talent from JHU.
2) You’re available for one or multiple 30-minute interviews between 9 am- 5pm Tuesday Jan 18 through Friday, Jan 21. (We send interview notifications out around December 10.)
3) To attend interviews that you have scheduled with employers. Failure to do so will result in expulsion from the DEI Collective process and removal from all other company interviews.
4) If you accept an internship offer with a DEI Collective company, you agree to follow through on your commitment to them. Failure to do so will result in ineligibility from LDL summer grants and future Hire Hopkins hiring initiatives.

2022 RISE Internship Program (JHU students only)-27202
If you’re a full-time student at the Johns Hopkins University majoring in engineering or computer science and would like to strengthen your preparation for a technical career, RISE (Research Internships in Science and Engineering) i s designed for you. This highly competitive, summer internship program focuses on professional development. The RISE Program is offered to well-qualified, highly motivated undergraduates and graduate students who have an interest in applied scientific research and are attending Johns Hopkins University.
RISE Interns will have the opportunity to work at the Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) where they will be partnered with a staff mentor experienced in their field of study. A not-for-profit division of the world-renowned Johns Hopkins University, APL is one of the nation’s premier engineering, research and development centers. For 75 years, APL has been a high-technology resource, setting the pace for innovation with a staff of 4,000, annual funding of $780 million and a wealth of intellectual capital. As a university-affiliated research center, APL serves as a liaison between government and industry, a trusted and impartial technical agent. That status, combined with our ability to team with the academic divisions of Johns Hopkins, means we can meet the nation’s most critical challenges through a proven formula of teamwork, systems engineering and the application of advanced technology. APL’s capabilities spans the national security and space exploration domains.
Interns will spend their summer in one of the following mission areas:
* Air & Missile Defense
* Precision Engagement
* Science & Technology
* Civilian Space
* Strategic Systems
* Homeland Protection
* Undersea Warfare
* Infocentric Operations
* Warfare Analysis
* National Security Space
Interns are teamed with a staff scientist or engineer who is conducting R&D in a field consistent with the intern’s academic major. Students have the chance to apply their schooling and hone their problem solving skills while helping to solve critical problems affecting our nation.
Typical internship assignments may include:
* Software Design & Development
* Modeling & Simulation
* Testing & Evaluation
* Hardware Design
* Data/Systems Design
* Scientific Research
For consideration, applicants should be:
– An engineering, computer science, applied mathematics, chemistry or physics major
– A full-time student at the Johns Hopkins University
– An achiever with at least a 3.0 overall GPA
– A person with an interest in applied scientific research
– A U.S. citizen (required in order to obtain a security clearance) Resume and transcript (unofficial) is required to complete your application
