The program, delivered by veski with support from the Office of the Lead Scientist Victoria, provides organisations with talented higher degree students and is an alternative, cost effective solution for a research challenge or problem facing your business.

Female honours and masters students, and their university supervisors, come from STEM disciplines to partner with industry through short-term (4 month) focused research internships.

The internships are also supported by funding for SMEs from the Victorian Government. 

Benefits

By hosting an inspiring women industry intern you can solve a problem facing your organisation, or improve a process that could deliver increased profits and business performance.

The internships also provide a new pool of talented individuals from which you can recruit future employees.  You will also benefit from reduced pressures related to managing the expenses and paperwork associated with engaging a new industry intern.

Your industry intern will benefit from the masterclass program covering: how to overcome barriers to successful career transition; a toolkit for transitioning to industry, and a facilitated discussion about what they have learnt, their workplace experiences, challenges and wins.
