About Kleiner Perkins (KP) Fellows Program

The Kleiner Perkins (KP) Fellows Program offers outstanding college students an opportunity to gain significant experience working on unique and challenging technical, design and product problems, and to develop new relationships and experiences that are impactful to their careers. Over the course of a summer, KP Design and Engineering Fellows will be employed at our portfolio companies, where they can develop their technical or design skills and be mentored by an executive within the company. Participants in our Product Fellows program will spend a full year working at a Valley startup. Fellows spend their time in San Francisco Bay Area-based companies including Uber, Airbnb, Pinterest, Slack, and many others. 

Fellows will also be invited to attend both private events held by KP and others hosted by portfolio companies, where they can meet other talented engineering and design students, network with luminaries in their respective fields, and explore the San Francisco Bay Area through community building events. Some events include a private presentation of Mary Meeker's famed Internet Trends Report, a design talk with John Maeda, a sailing trip along the Bay and much more.


The KP Engineering Fellows Program is open to outstanding undergraduate and graduate students enrolled at U.S. universities who are studying computer science, engineering, mathematics, physics or fields related to software development.

The KP Design Fellows Program is open to outstanding students from any academic discipline; the summer program will focus on Visual, Interaction, or Web User Interface Design. We will also accept individuals for the Design Fellows Program who have not attended a college, but can demonstrate relevant work experience.

The KP Product Fellows Program is open to outstanding undergraduate or graduate students who will graduate from a U.S. university with a degree in computer science, engineering, mathematics, physics or fields related to software development, as well as graduate students in M.B.A programs.
