Student Internship Stipends Window
These stipends will be available for students in their last 2 years of university studies, who need to gain knowledge and practical skills in mid-level or advanced-level value added IT service. Stipends for student internships will cover students working for a local company, on local or international client-related work. These stipends can cover transportation and allowance. Student internship stipends will have a fixed amount and will be valid for a maximum of two years. The companies will need to present a training/ work plan for the intern, conduct monthly evaluation of the interns and issue a part-time employment contract to students.
The supported internships are expected to lead to full-time jobs once the internship period is over, either by the same firm, or by another firm in the market. It is also expected that if the intern is not employed at the end of the internship, he or she will have gained practical knowledge and experience that help qualify them for future employment and will have contributed to increasing the skilled human capital in the IT sector. The internships stipends will be granted to students to work in IT services companies and high-tech and tech enabled startups that need to upskill the workforce to scale up their business. The stipend amount can go up to $500, depending on current market value for position or technical skill, and technology/ project complexity.
