Summer Internship Programme

CSES encourage students to develop an aptitude for research by welcoming them as interns and volunteers and giving them a first-hand research experience. Interns should be students pursuing Post Graduate Degrees or PhD or should have graduated recently in the fields of social science (economics, sociology, anthropology political science, social work, gender studies, development studies), journalism, environmental studies or related disciplines. Internship would provide opportunities to carry out independent research projects, fieldwork, building databases, preparing briefing papers, reports and presentations. Interns can also associate in the online outreach of CSES by creating social media content for the Centre on platforms such as Facebook, Youtube and Blogs.
