Over the next four years, APR.Intern will undergo a national expansion placing 1400 new research internships into industry from 2017 to 2020. A new 50 per cent Australian Government rebate on the cost of a typical $26k (5 month) postgraduate internship is now available to all small-to-medium and large enterprise, as well as government agencies, exclusively through the APR.Intern program.
These internships are supported by the Australian Government Department of Education and Training, through the ‘Supporting more women in STEM careers: Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute (AMSI) – National Research Internship Program’; and aim to enhance the postgraduate experience by giving students the opportunity to apply their research skills within an industry context and increase their employment opportunities.
