A new mentorship program has been launched by Apple, aiming to help first-generation college students majoring in finance, economics, and accounting. Named as Launch@Apple, it is set to be launched in early 2021 with opportunities for jobs, paid externships, and paid internships.
The program will “focus on the essentials to manage and then excel in school and work” and will provide resources for “learning and opportunities for personal and professional growth.”
This program hasn’t been publicly announced by Apple; the news came to highlight when Apple engineer Logan Kilpatrick tweeted about the opportunity. The program is launched for students whose parents were not able to obtain a college degree.
