The main goal of the Internship Awards is to provide exposure to research for international development through a program of training in research management and grant administration under the guidance of IDRC program staff. Internships are designed to provide hands-on learning experiences in research program management – in the creation, dissemination and utilization of knowledge from an international perspective. The interns will undertake a program of research on the topic submitted when competing for the internship award. During a part (often around 50%) of their time, they will be trained in the techniques of research management through hands-on work experience with their chosen program’s programming and practices. They will work under the mentorship of a Program Officer(s). For approximately 50% of the remainder of the time, the selected candidates will be expected to provide support to management and program staff in some of the following areas: synthesis of project outcomes; production of publications and dissemination materials or activities on research results; participation in team meetings; research tasks to locate, review and synthesize relevant material; preparation of state of the art reviews; preparation of correspondence, reports and presentations; assistance with the organization of meetings, workshops and seminars; preparation of minutes; updating and maintaining databases; and maintenance of the website; and exchange with other institutions working on a broad range of issues related to programming.
