Information Technology Associates Program
The Information Technology Associates Program (ITAP) provides internship-quality opportunities for students to expand their technology and professional skills. ITAP students work in selected on-campus jobs and projects involving technology. The program is open to students of any major, and ITAP interns gain valuable professional communication, technology, and leadership skills that are essential to any career path. These are paid positions, but students do not need to be eligible for work-study financial aid to participate.
ITAP Apprentices are first-year DePauw students who have been admitted into ITAP. Apprentices participate in a yearlong orientation and training program called ITAP Institute.
ITAP Associates are DePauw sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Associates have either completed ITAP Institute or been granted lateral entry into ITAP. These students participate in yearlong on-campus internships working closely with faculty and/or staff members in departments all over campus.
ITAP admits new students (both apprentices and lateral entries) to the program every fall term.
In addition to internships, apprentices and associates participate in ITAP Colloquia Series, a series of professional presentations involving topics related to information technology such as technical skills workshops or a discussion regarding its impact in the context of society, education, and business.
Senior associates complete a capstone project, which is presented at the ITAP Senior Showcase during the spring semester.
