Covid-19 Response internship
See how to get funding to recruit a Sussex student on an internship. They can make a difference with your work responding to Covid-19.
About the scheme
Our Covid-19 Response internship programme supports organisations who are responding to the challenges of coronavirus, making a difference to social, economic, environmental, cultural and/or health and wellbeing recovery from the Covid-19 crisis.
You can access funding to recruit a summer intern who will make a positive and tangible impact on the work you’re undertaking.
These opportunities are co-funded by the University of Sussex and Santander Universities UK.
Hiring a student or graduate
As an employer, you can access funding to recruit a current University of Sussex student, or a recent University of Sussex graduate, full time for a four-, six- or eight-week internship.
You should pay your intern at least £9.30 an hour – or £10.75 an hour if your organisation is based in London – and be able to pay them through your organisation’s payroll.
You need to supply the University of Sussex with your business bank account and finance administration details.
You and your intern must fill out an evaluation before the end of the internship.
Interns must be currently registered students at the University of Sussex or must have graduated in 2018, 2019 or 2020.
