Would you like to work with a Warwick intern in your charity or SME?

The University of Warwick is pleased to share details of this year’s funded internship programme, offering Charities and Small and Medium-sized Enterprises 222 hours of flexible collaboration with a Warwick undergraduate student/finalist, supported by a tax-free grant of £2100 (£2500 in Greater London).

Covid-19 severely limited our scope for internships in 2020 and we are grateful to the many organisations who worked with us to manage student expectations last March.

We have been speaking with employers since then and fully recognise that this might not be the right time for your organisation to host an intern, due to more pressing business priorities, so we look forward to working with you as and when appropriate.

The Warwick Internship Programme retains Warwick Summer Internships’ comprehensive funding and high-quality student participation, with the additional benefits of flexible start dates (April-July) and working patterns (full-time, part-time, or a mixture), plus a new emphasis on remote working.

All internships will be considered, if they allow for a minimum of 148 hours to have been undertaken by 30 July, and they should be designed with remote working in mind.<> Funding will be available on a first come first served basis, as ever, but with a clearer picture of the funding landscape at point of entry due to the data afforded by more gradual uptake of grants.

There is initial funding for 80 internships.
