The Insurance industry's guide for the best places to intern


The RISE Elite 50 Internships is an annual program that identifies and publishes a list of the 50 best internship programs in the Insurance industry across the USA. The program is comprised of a publication (both digital and hard copy), a dedicated interactive section of the RISE website, and a virtual award presentation.

Nominations for the list can be submitted by the company or the participating interns as they answer a series of questions about the program. Multiple submissions are allowed and encouraged. There is NO fee to submit a nomination. The submissions will be scored according to the 10 categories. The list of 50 companies will be published alphabetically.

Validation: Steering committee will validate all submissions for accurate identification.
