Waystar Scholars Mentoring Program
Jefferson Community and Technical College opens doors for their students and transforms communities through an unwavering commitment to inclusivity and educational excellence. Waystar is proud to support this mission with the Waystar Scholars Mentoring Program.
We established this program in 2021 to help underrepresented students launch fulfilling careers in the healthcare technology space. Over the course of two years, Waystar Scholars work toward an associate degree in computer and information technologies while receiving valuable on-the-job mentorship from Waystar team members.
Our annual internship program, Rise with Waystar, is open to undergraduates and graduates pursuing a wide range of disciplines. Through remote and on-site arrangements, our interns are able to spend a summer with us, working and learning alongside Waystar team members. Depending on their professional interests, our interns have the flexibility to work in multiple areas of our organization—from sales and marketing to client operations and technology.
