Intern with us

HRF values the contributions of students when they undertake assignments with us as a part of their course curriculum. Each year we host between five to ten students.

Internships in HRF range from four to eight weeks and six to twelve months so that there can be substantial engagement with the issues. Selection will include an interview, choice of subject and a writing sample. A letter from the institute is necessary.

Each student is assigned a mentor for the duration. Students can choose to do research, field work or a combination of both. Student assignments can be on any thematic or technical area that we work on.

Certificates are awarded on successful completion.

Those with special needs are required to inform us in advance so that we can make suitable arrangements. They are encouraged to visit our office to assess suitability.

Interested students may write to with the choice of subject for the assignment, preferred dates and latest CV, at least three months before their preferred dates. We will reply within two weeks.
