How the Programme Works
All applications to the Community Internship Programme must be made jointly by the host organisation, the intern and the home organisation. Applications should clearly demonstrate how the outcomes of the internship will benefit and be of value to all three parties.
In addition to the information presented on the Community Internship Programme webpage, please read and consider the detail presented for Employers / Home Organisations, for Interns and /or for Host Organisations as background to your internship planning.
How It Works
In 2005/06, each successful host organisation will receive a grant specifically to support the salary of the intern. The host community organisation is responsible for the provision of administration and resources to support the internship.
Applications can be made for internships of 6 months or 4.5 months or 3 months full-time-equivalent duration.
The start and finish dates, proposed internship work programme and the plan for how the intern’s hours will distributed within the CIP timeframe (see below) is a matter for agreement between the intern and their home and host organisations.
Note: In certain circumstances the Panel may consider lowering the salary subsidy for the Intern to cover resource costs associated with the internship. However, it is expected that host community organisations will have planned for, and can provide for, the administrative and resource costs associated with hosting the intern and undertaking the internship.
Criteria for selection
In addition to fitting the descriptions of the key participants and meeting the goals of the programme as stated on this website, each internship application must be accompanied by all of the information requested in the How To Apply section below.
