Warwick Internship Programme (WIP) 2021 – open for submission of internship vacancies

The Warwick Internship Programme offers a 222-hour, flexibly-worked, managed undergraduate internship programme for SMEs and charities, with access to £2,100-£2,500 funding grants towards internships taking place on a full or part-time basis (or a combination of the two) starting April to early July, with a minimum of 148 hours taking place in advance of 30th July.

It replaces the Warwick Summer Internships programme to provide project-based opportunities for collaboration between host organisations and students, with an emphasis on flexible, remote working, or work undertaken in a Covid-secure environment. 

All internships will be considered, if they allow for a minimum of 148 hours to have been undertaken by 30 July, and they should be designed with remote working in mind.  Funding will be available on a first come first served basis, as ever, but with a clearer picture of the funding landscape at point of entry due to the data afforded by more gradual uptake of grants. There is initial funding for 80 internships.
