Apple unveils new ’21 Launch @ Apple ‘mentorship program

Apple has quietly launched a new mentoring program aimed at first-generation college students studying accounting and economics. It includes support for Apple employees and the ability to shadow jobs and even paid internships. The new program starts in early 2021 and applications are now open.

Seen by MyHealthApple, the new university mentorship program has some notable requirements. To be eligible to apply, you must be a first-generation first-year or second-year student, as well as majoring in accounting, economics or finance.

Here’s how the company describes “Launch @ Apple”:

Launching takes care of students individually with Apple mentors and provides resources and opportunities for personal and professional growth. Launch will focus on the necessities of driving and then excelling at school and work. Launch participants can also provide opportunities for work shadows, paid internships and paid internships.

Apple engineer Logan Kilpatrick tweeted just before Christmas about the new opportunity. The image below contains all the details you need to make sure you are eligible and everything you need to include in your application (by 8 January 2021).

That’s not entirely clear, but it may be part of or related to Apple’s $ 100 million racial justice and shares.
