Opportunities for job shadowing paid externships, and paid internships may also be available to Launch participants.

This new Apple mentorship program kicks off in early 2021.

Participants will need to meet the following qualifications:

  1. In the first or second year of college
  2. A parent or legal guardian has not obtained a college degree
  3. Intending to major in finance, economics, accounting, or similar discipline relating to business, mathematics, commerce, or data analytics and

Your email to Apple should cover the following: apple launch 2021 mentor program

To Apple, applicants will need to send an email to [email protected] by Friday, Jan 8th, 2021.

This is a great Apple initiative that is designed to provide a platform for aspiring students and help Apple find new talent from different universities.

This program is somewhat designed along the lines of Google’s summer of the code mentorship program. Still, the major difference is that Apple’s Launch program is looking more for business and economics majors than developers and programmers.

Amazon also had a similar mentorship program for Arts and Science majors in collaboration with the University of Washington.

Please note that the deadline for your email submission is Jan 8th, 2021.

I am a technologist with years of experience with Apple and wearOS products and have a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science. In my day job, I advise fortune 500 companies with their digital transformation strategies and also consult with numerous digital health startups in an advisory capacity. I'm VERY interested in exploring the digital health&fitness-tech evolution and keep a close eye on patents, FDA approvals, strategic partnerships and developments happening in the wearables and digital health sector. When I'm not writing or presenting, I run with my Apple Watch or Fossil Gen 5 LTE and keep a close eye on my HRV and other recovery metrics.
