Internships are short, professional, paid work experience opportunities that offer employers the opportunity to create a talent pipeline for the future, building sustainable relationships and partnerships with young people that can develop over time. 
 
The project itself must meet the following criteria: 
 
? There should be a focus on the application of immersive and interactive media technologies (VR, AR and mixed reality and combined, known collectively as XR) underpinning a digital storytelling narrative. 
 
? The funding is available to SMEs in all screen industry sectors, including film, TV, gaming, animation and other digital media agencies. 
 
? The internship should be no more than 6 weeks full-time, paid at a minimum of £9.30 per hour - 80% of the total wage can be reclaimed by the SME from The University of Sheffield at the end of the internship.  
 
? The project should be challenging and stimulating to the intern with a defined output that provides a benefit to the business.  
 
Funding will be allocated to the roles we feel are a high developmental opportunity for our graduates, and where they will gain a wide range of experience. Please put as much detail as possible about what the internship role involves, and what the individual will develop by undertaking the internship. This will be the information we assess and funding will be allocated on the basis of the information provided.
