Move your Business Forward with Internships
Take advantage of Australia’s world-class university talent by placing an undergraduate or postgraduate student intern in your business.
DSI’s Industry Internship Grants are geared towards industry partners wanting to place an undergraduate or postgraduate student. We provide financial support to help companies meet the costs of industry internships for undergraduate and RHD students via collaboration with the Ai group and the APR.Intern program respectively. We can also help you identify issues that might benefit from a research intern, connecting you to some of the brightest research talent in Victoria’s Universities.
Interns can help you find solutions to technical roadblocks, develop new ideas and insights and bring the latest thinking and research into your business. We work with you to help identify how an intern can bring value to your business and help cover the costs of hosting an intern.Interns are also a great way to start developing a research relationship with a university. The right intern can lead to excellent short-term outcomes, solving an immediate problem, and brings the potential for longer-term relationships with both the intern and their university.
