Industrial Partners

A company can be a member of the 6-A program either as a 6-A Core Partner or as a 6-A Affiliate. From a student perspective, there are two important differences between Core Partners and Affiliates. First, students doing their internship at a Core Partner will typically receive a 6-A Fellowship through MIT during the fall term of their 6-month internship. This Fellowship pays the student’s salary, MIT tuition, and health insurance during the fall term (See the student FAQ for more information on what a 6-A Fellowship is).  On the other hand, Affiliate companies do not offer a 6-A Fellowship but they pay the students directly during the fall term. In this case, students are responsible for paying the MIT tuition and health insurance expenses directly. To make sure students interning at a 6-A Affiliate company receive the same level of benefits than the ones at a Core Partner, the 6-A office asks 6-A Affiliate companies to set a minimum salary for their 6-A interns that is typically higher than what the students who are in the 6-A program receive, in order for them to pay these additional expenses.

The second important difference between interning at a 6-A Core Partner and a 6-A Affiliate is that 6-A Core Partners will pay (through their membership fees) the tuition of the student during the spring term of his or her MEng degree, if the student has not been able to secure a Teaching Assistantship that term. Students interning at 6-A Affiliate companies do not have this guaranteed support due to the reduced membership fees paid by 6-A Affiliate companies.
