Details of virtual internship projects and the application process are posted here: https://www.smsfoundation.org/internships/
Application and Selection Process
Application: Sehgal Foundation announces its internship projects on its website www.smsfoundation.org. Candidates should browse through this list under the section ‘Internship and Volunteer Projects’ to find a project of interest and draft a one-page abstract (reason behind selecting the internship topic and academic background/experience for doing the project) and submit the topic along with the following documents to the Internship Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org preferably two months prior to the proposed project start date:
- Current copy of Curriculum Vitae
- Statement of purpose
- Two academic references
Applications will be reviewed by the prospective Project Supervisor(s) and will be evaluated based on the match between the academic background and the project, the match between the project and SM Sehgal Foundation’s needs, and the level of motivation to contribute towards rural development. If a student proposes a project not in the list, the reviewers will assess the relevance of the proposed project to the SM Sehgal Foundation’s work. Short-listed candidates for virtual internships are interviewed over Zoom.
Students seeking to receive academic credit for their internship should specify this requirement in their application along with the name and contact details of their home institution’s internship supervisor. If specific credentials are required for a supervisor to qualify, the applicant must mention those criteria.
