Careers @ Meta
Meta University
Develop skills to make a real impact and help redefine how the world connects.

What is Meta University?
Meta University is an immersive ten-week paid internship program that enables students from underrepresented communities to get to know Meta’s people, products and services.
How it works
The program was designed to provide technical skill development and professional work experience to students who are historically underrepresented. It takes place from May to August and includes a few weeks of relevant technical training followed by hands-on project work. Throughout the duration of the program, participants are paired with a Meta team member who serves as a mentor.
Who should apply
Current first-year or second-year college students studying at a four-year university (or equivalent program for special cases) in the U.S., Canada, or Mexico. Candidates from historically underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply.
How to apply
Applicants will be asked to submit their resume, and both their high school and college transcripts (official or unofficial will suffice). Meta Eng students will also be asked to complete a 70-minute coding challenge.

Meta University applications are closed for 2024.
