The Shell Technology Enterprise Programme, which runs an annual award to find the most enterprising student, is looking for small- and medium-sized enterprises to employ the eager candidates for next year's contest.
The award recognises the student that made the most difference to an SME's operations during an eight-week period over the university summer holidays.
Sponsor companies will be expected to pay their STEP employee about £180 a week.
Winners of this year's regional awards included Ali Zaidi, a web development student at Teesside University, who created an online search engine optimised directory system for Visualsoft, a Middlesbrough-based internet company.
The product has already generated £60,000 in sales with the potential to add another £250,000 to turnover, according to Visualsoft. Further details at www.step.org.uk.
