Commonwealth STEM Industry Internship Program (CSIIP) Internship

This Commonwealth STEM Industry Internship Program (CSIIP) opportunity is through two awards received through the Commonwealth Cyber Initiative. One is strictly for Coastal Virginia and one is for all four regions of Virginia called Nodes.


This is for a subsidized internship for small-medium sized companies within the Coastal Virginia area which includes Hampton Roads and Eastern Shore. We are the venue for internships for all of Coastal Virginia’s CCI area where we can provide a 25% internship subsidy to help defray the costs up to a maximum of $2500 for Virginia-based small-medium businesses as defined by the Small Business Administration.


The project must be cybersecurity related and the students must be from public Virginia universities, colleges, and community colleges pursuing a cybersecurity or cybersecurity related major. These subsidies are provided on a first come-first serve basis.


We have about 16 for the Coastal Virginia Node on a first come, first serve basis. The website is Questions: Debbie Murray –, 757-880-6591; Scott Bellows –, 757-876-4413.
