According to MyHealthyApple, Apple's College Mentorship Program is somehow engineered similarly to that of Google's Summer of the Code Mentorship Program. The difference is that instead of training potential programmers and developers, Apple's program is geared towards honing and eyeing students interested in business and finance. They are also looking for students with potential to be part of Apple's team in the future.

Apple's very lucrative college mentorship program has been getting attention from many sophomore and freshmen students. The program gears on eyeing first-generation college students as delegates for the said program since they are often  challenged with the lack of resources needed to succeed in a very competitive working environment.

Apple has a proven track record as a multinational technological giant. It has exceeded expectations that go beyond providing utilities for consumers.
