Internship Information

MRI Software is offering an internship to at least one select member from the winning team of the Hackathon: Best Overall award. Hackathon organizers will reach out to the winners with more details after the event concludes. This internship may be a paid or unpaid position, in-person or virtual, offering in-school credit, or any other number of modifiers, depending on agreements reached between the participant, their school, and MRI Software.

If all members of the winning team decline this opportunity, hackathon organizers will reach out to the next award-winners down the list of awards as presented on the Devpost.
