The SME Summer Internship Programme - Applications Now Open!

16th March 2022

Are you an SME or charity in the Sheffield City Region that would like to host a funded student internship?

The University of Sheffield has 20 x £1000 grants available for SMEs and charities within the Sheffield City Region to apply for, to host a student internship of between 70 and 105 hours. 

The SME Summer Internship Programme provides you with a talented professional who will bring new ideas to your team as they develop their industry experience.

Funding is not allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. We are particularly interested in receiving applications from organisations in sectors where unpaid work experience is the norm and organisations in sectors that the pandemic has hit hardest. We hope to support students that would not otherwise get a paid opportunity and also support local businesses and charities that form our communities. This opportunity is funded by the Rob Pulford First Gen+ Fund.

View the full information pack here - this includes a link to the application form and our recruitment guidance. The deadline for funding applications is Friday 8th April.

Hear from previous organisations and interns on their experience of the programme:
