STRIDE offers a unique opportunity for a guaranteed summer internship for PhD students in the program. STRIDE students will embark on a 10-week summer internship experience once during the course of the program. Internship applications are available early in the Spring semester. Placements include: Antarctic Southern Ocean Coalition (ASOC), National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), among others.
The internship experience will give you an opportunity for real-world applications of everything you've been learning within the STRIDE program; science communication, data analysis, and data visualization.
As a STRIDE trainee, you are encouraged to network and build contacts within your desired field of study. You are encouraged to identify internship opportunities through these networks and are permitted to arrange internships on your own if you so choose.

We are seeking students to collaborate with our staff on work of mutual interest, ideally culminating in a published work. Current areas of interest include developing:
+ Machine-learning that can predict the likelihood that a source code static analysis finding would be considered actionable by a human reviewer. Solution will likely involve abstract representations of application source code, backwards slices of application code, data flow modeling, and measures of tree similarity.
+ Visualization and workflows to support developer exploration of application security findings and the comprehension of security status.

Working as an intern at BCG is more than an opportunity to bolster your résumé. It also offers the potential to launch a career at BCG, as a vast majority of our interns receive offers for full-time positions.
You’ll work with and be mentored by BCG consultants, and you’ll take responsibility for specific components of a client project. As a case team member, you’ll gain a 360-degree perspective on life as a BCG consultant—from working on client projects to socializing with colleagues.
BCG internships are generally two to three months long but can vary from a few weeks to a year, depending on the role and location. Some interns travel—including abroad—but return to their home offices at the end of each week for special events and social activities. This helps them meet other interns, get to know BCG consultants, and have some fun along the way.
If you are selected for our program, we’ll work with you to understand your interests and assign you to a case that aligns with your personal and professional goals. Past interns have helped solve a range of interesting challenges, from uncovering why a US technology company was losing market share in Europe to determining the best strategy for a luxury-goods brand to enter China.
Orientation and training sessions aimed at providing additional insight into the consulting profession are offered throughout your internship, giving you a complete view of what it would be like to work as a BCG consultant after you graduate.
We accept online applications from exceptional business school, engineering, science, law, and humanities students who are nearing the completion of their undergraduate or graduate studies.
