The E-Internship usually runs for three months and is unpaid. However, the period can be extended. The E-Interns will work as Lead Researchers in the projects and are expected to write at least three publishable articles during the period of E-Internship, which will be published in and assist in other projects depending on the candidate’s interest and skill set.

The schedule under E-Internship is flexible and provides opportunity to work with Mantraya’s team of Experts and Advisers. We invite researchers and students to avail of this opportunity. We strongly encourage those interested in primary and field research to contribute to this initiative.

To apply please mail a CV, a passport-size high resolution photograph, a writing sample of 500 words indicating your preference for either of the Projects, and a tentative date for joining the internship programme to
