Frequently Asked Questions

What is Tech.LA?
Tech.LA Fellows is a fellowship that pairs ambitious and motivated college students with incredible startups in the Los Angeles area. In addition to a guaranteed, paid summer internship at one of our partner companies, our Fellows will also become a part of the TechLA family, a community of leaders and entrepreneurs that will provide a diverse blend of social and professional opportunities.

What does the application process look like?
After submitting the written application, we will evaluate and select “Semi-Finalists” for a phone screen. Based on the results of the phone screen, we will select a pool of “Finalists.” Tech.LA Fellows will pass your resume onto our partner companies for an interview. We will facilitate your interview process, but the interview will be conducted by our partner companies.

What is a “Finalist” versus a “Fellow?”
As a “Finalist,” you are being considered by one (or more) of our partner companies for a summer internship. A “Fellow” will receive (and accept) a paid offer from a partner company.

When will “Finalists” hear back from companies?
Please wait 3-4 weeks from the time of your phone screen results to both interview with and hear back from our partner companies.

Will housing be provided for the Fellows?
We are working on providing a set housing option for our Fellows. This may be subsidized, but will not be free of cost. However, all internships are paid and we can facilitate the housing search in Los Angeles!

When does the Fellows program begin and end?
The length of your internship is a negotiation between you and our partner companies. While your internships may begin earlier or end later, the Fellows programming will begin in mid-June and end in mid-late August.

Who should I contact if I have any more questions?
If you have any questions about the program, the selection process, or anything at all, please send us an email at [email protected], and we will get back to you as soon as possible!
