OTC Fellows Program

The OTC offers an experiential learning and work opportunity to qualified graduate and undergraduate students. OTC Fellows work closely with the OTC on a part-time basis to enhance the OTC’s understanding of the commercial potential of UK technologies, and to assist with the commercialization process. In turn, Fellows gain in-depth and real world experience working on early stage technology assessments, writing technology summaries and preparing deal pitch materials for marketing campaigns, among other duties. For information on the OTC Fellows program, please contact our OTC Fellows coordinator.
