RCUK Policy Internship Scheme 2017


We’re please to announce the 2017 RCUK Policy Internship Scheme is open for applications from AHRC-funded students.


The Research Councils organise internships for current Research Council-funded PhD students to spend three months at partner host organisations on one or more policy topics relevant to both the student and the host. You will have the opportunity to produce at least one briefing paper, participate in a policy inquiry and/or organise a policy event, or equivalent piece of work.


Internships are awarded to a number of Parliamentary, Government Departments and Non-Governmental Bodies, and Learned societies. AHRC-funded students have been very well-received by these organisations in the past, and alumni of the scheme have subsequently benefited from their policy experience and contacts in their ongoing research and career development.


There will be 22 Hosting Partners for the 2017/18 competition round:


For more information about the scheme, and directions on how you can apply, see the call page at the AHRC website.

Applications will close at 4 pm on Thursday 10 August.
