Who can apply for the program?
The 8VC Fellows Program is open to undergraduate students in computer science, bioengineering and related fields.
When can I apply?
Right now. Send your resume and a short note about your interests to Fellows@8VC.com by October 15th, 2017. We will place most interns in the Fall, but also will work with late applicants into the Winter for final fellowship slots.
What is the interview and selection process?
First, send us your resume. Then our team will review all resumes together and select a pool of applicants for technical phone screens. The students that pass our screens will be introduced to a few of our top portfolio companies who will then set up phone screens and in some cases an on-site visit. We will review each student’s preferences on the phone screen call as well to help place students at their desired startup or at a startup in the space they are interested in.
How many Fellows will 8VC accept?
10ish. We may expand the program.
Is the 8VC Fellows Program paid?
Yes. Salary will be negotiated between the Fellow and the company, however, 8VC will give strong guidance for each participating company. The average monthly summer salary for engineering interns in San Francisco is $6,800. We fully expect our companies to pay at or above this range.
