We are pleased to announce that the 2019/20 call for the UK Research and Innovation Policy Internships Scheme is now open. The Scheme provides the opportunity for doctoral students funded by the research councils of UK Research and Innovation to work for three months in one of a selected group of highly influential policy organisations. Students undertaking an internship through the Scheme will work on one or more policy topics relevant to both the student and their host organisation. They will be expected to produce at least one briefing paper, participate in a policy inquiry and/or organise a policy event, or equivalent piece of work.

How to apply

The call closes on 12 August 2019. Information on how to apply along with further details on host partners, funding and eligibility can be found at: UK Research and Innovation: Policy Internships Scheme.
