SUMMER & WINTER INTERNSHIP PROGRAMME

SUMMER & WINTER INTERNSHIP PROGRAMME

Equity Foundation is committed to working with students to help them develop knowledge base and to provide a support structure that encourages creation of new venues in their future.
 
The objective of this program is to educate students. This serves to complement the student’s major area of study, whether it is social theme, legal, by offering a means of putting theory and science into practice. The goal of Internship is to provide the knowledge and skills needed to start and grow new ventures. The program deals with the topics of innovation, analysis, and competitive strategy.
 
The Centre provides:
 
*      Exposure through programs, speakers, and outreach opportunities;
*      Education in informal environment;
*      Experience
 
Internship: Internships will involve a short training period with Centre staff and partner organizations to learn basic skills in:
 
Sociology
Gender
Research
Law
Development
 
Following a brief training, interns are placed in actual start-up organisations for the internship experience. Interns are required to prepare a written report and give an oral presentation at a closing program outlining the lessons learned and experiences gained during the internship experience at a closing program.
 
The student intern should ask his/her supervisor at the sponsor organization to write a short evaluation of the student’s performance at the end of the internship.  It would be helpful if the supervisor could comment on the student’s performance and contributions made to the organization, including effort, attitude, ability to work with people, and specific results achieved. This report should be sent to both the internship professor and to the Internship Coordinator/Director.
