About the Program
RDV Trek 2016

The RDV Academy connects the most talented, technical students with high-growth startups in Boston and NYC. We're inviting sophomores and juniors to apply to join a fully immersive three-month summer experience, where each student will spend the summer working directly with a top-tier engineering team. 

Scholars of The RDV Academy will gain a deeper understanding of how to grow and scale as a part of an engineering team and experience each company's culture first hand. Through weekly tech talks, Scholars will learn from notable startup executives from participating companies across key functional areas.

Top applicants will be invited to interview with participating companies this fall. Students will be selected based on their skills and interests and will be begin their summer experience in June.

The application deadline for The RDV Academy class of 2017 has passed.
