Magnify Internship Program

For Students

The Magnify Internship Program is an opportunity for undergraduate students in their 3rd year or beyond interested in gaining hands-on experience and mentorship working with a scientific start-up company. Student applicants selected for the program will be matched with a current Magnify portfolio start-up company for an 8 month internship experience during the academic school year (Oct 2024-May 2025), culminating in a final project to be presented to the cohort at the end of the internship.


Magnify Interns will receive a monthly stipend disbursed by the UCLA Financial Aid Office for their work hours through funding provided by the State of California to the California Institutes of Science and Innovation (Cal ISI’s) dedicated to workforce training and development. Internships are 10, 12 or 15 hours per week and stipends equate to $20/hr.


In addition to their work hours with a Magnify Company, Magnify Interns will also be required to attend professional development workshops and participate in brief check-ins with the workforce development team on a quarterly basis. 

Magnify Interns selected to work with a Magnify Company must meet the following criteria:

  • Must be currently enrolled at UCLA
  • Must be an undergraduate student with upperclassman standing (transfer students encouraged to apply)
  • Must be 18 or older
  • Must take all required EH&S Lab Safety Trainings before working in-lab
  • Must be able to participate for the duration of the program (6 month minimum)

Applications for fall 2024 are open Monday, April 8th through Friday, May 10th.

Company-led interviews will be conducted virtually in July-August with finalists selected in early September.
