Call for Summer Internship Projects
Stage 1 of the Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga 2019-2020 Summer Internship project applications process is open once again.  NPM Investigators from our 21 partner institutions are invited to submit an intern project proposal now. Your proposal is for a project to be carried out over a ten-week period during the summer holiday break from December 2019 to February 2020. The project will be carried out by an student intern under the supervision and with the support of an NPM Researcher. To propose an internship project researchers must submit their project proposals online. A project assessment and selection process then takes place and at least 20 internship project proposals will be advertised September 2019 for students to review and apply to undertake.

Call for Borrin Foundation - NPM Summer Internship Projects
