Bessemer Fellowship Program

Connecting university students to great tech companies


Eligibility

A Bessemer Fellow is a special appointment for high-performing third-year college students interested in pursuing an internship in engineering, product, or data science. The program is for students who have demonstrated excellence in their academic or professional pursuits and are passionate about contributing to Bessemer’s robust entrepreneurship ecosystem.

The Bessemer Fellowship Program will appoint up to 20 fellows for Summer 2023. Applications are accepted for third-year undergraduate students in these functions. We are particularly focused on working with students from underrepresented backgrounds.

Applications for Summer 2023 are now closed. We plan to open our Summer 2024 application in the Spring. Please reach out to talent@bvp.com with any questions!

Note: This is not an analyst or venture capital internship, but instead an opportunity to work at one of the companies that Bessemer has funded. If you are looking for an internship to learn more about the world of venture capital investing, please consider applying to Bessemer’s Analyst Program.
