Every summer, Hand in Hand offers a four-week internship programme focused on well-defined projects and deliverables. The deadline for applying to this year’s programme is 31 May 2008. We welcome master and PhD students from universities all over the world to apply to the programme, and we are especially looking for graduate students in the fields of development economics, sustainable development, economics, entrepreneurship, and business. Hand in Hand will provide for room and board during the intern’s stay in Tamil Nadu, India, as well as for local transportation.
