Capstone Project

The Bank Interdisciplinary Experience (BIE) capstone project gives interns an opportunity to use their learned skills on real issues with a team of other interns. You will use knowledge gained during the summer from both workshops and on-the-job experiences. Intern teams present the project solution at the end of the summer to a panel of judges composed of St. Louis Fed leaders. Judges evaluate each presentation based upon a consistent rubric. The winning team is announced at the BIE reception and awards ceremony.
