The National Research Foundation (NRF) in partnership with the Department of Science and Innovation (DSI) is launching a call for applications for graduate internships for the period 2021-2022. The Graduate Internship Programme is a two-year work experience programme for bachelor’s graduates who will be pursuing honours studies simultaneously during the internship period. In order to be accepted into the programme, prospective interns should also have been accepted into an honours programme. Mentors will interview and shortlist potential interns from this pool of students that have been accepted into an honours programme. Host institutions will sign a two-year contract of appointment with the approved interns. In addition, interns’ honours tuition fees will be funded by the NRF up to a maximum of R50 000 over the two-year internship and paid directly to the university at which they are registered.
