Creating diversity in the technology field can begin with preparing students for STEM careers at an early age, according to IBM. The tech giant is offering 1,000 paid internships to students and graduates of its Pathways in Technology Early College High Schools (P-TECH) program, IBM announced July 20. The internship program will run through Dec. 31, 2021. IBM's P-TECH program, established in 2011, is a public education model that provides an opportunity, at no cost, for students to earn both their high school diploma and a two–year associate degree linked to STEM fields such as cybersecurity. The company usually has about 150 interns a year from P-TECH. In the expansion, the paid internship program is a 10-time incremental increase from the company's most recent internship goals, according to IBM.
