About the Internship Program

Winners of the Amazon Future Engineer scholarship receive a guaranteed, paid 12-week summer internship at Amazon after completing their freshman year of college. While working at Amazon, AFE interns work embedded on a software engineering team and pair up with a co-intern, manager, and mentors to build projects that have real impact on Amazon customers. Interns get to work on some of Amazon’s groundbreaking technologies and core platforms, like Alexa voice technology, Amazon Web Services, and the Amazon retail platform. At the end of the summer, most interns ship production-level code to Amazon!
