Under the Australian Government’s National Research Industry Program (NRIP), APR.Intern is offering all businesses a 50% rebate on internship placements with domestic students.
Placements available under NRIP are limited with a 20% cap on international student internships over the life of the program. High demand and industry interest in these skills mean there can be no more NRIP international placements for the foreseeable future. However, opportunities for international PhD students are still available with APR.Intern, outside of NRIP, and we encourage applications.
The 50% NRIP rebate will be granted by APR.Intern to all eligible industry partners who achieve agreed milestones and reporting, as outlined in the project contract.
50% rebate will only be granted to industry partners once all agreed milestones and reporting outlined in the project contract are completed and approved by APR.Intern.
PhD student must be domestic and have full-time or part-time enrolment status at an Australian university.
The total number of rebates offered are limited, and subject to targets in relation to domestic participation and gender equality. Rebates will be offered at the discretion of APR.Intern.
