Summer Internship Programme 2018 for NZ Scholarship Students

News 31 Aug 2018

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT), in partnership with the Pacific Cooperation Foundation (PCF), is offering current New Zealand Scholarship students studying at undergraduate level the opportunity to gain work experience in New Zealand over the summer period.

The purpose of the internships is for high achieving students from the Pacific and Timor Leste to gain professional experience through work with reputable New Zealand companies and government organisations, to develop professional networks, and to improve their readiness to enter employment on return to their home country.

Internships will last 10 weeks from November 19, 2018 until February 15, 2019.

Although most internships are unpaid MFAT will continue to pay standard scholarship stipends for the period of the internship. Interns will still be entitled to take Reunion Travel during the summer period, but will be expected to do so at a time that does not interfere with their internship or study responsibilities.
