The E-Internship usually runs for three months and is unpaid. However, the period can be extended. The E-Interns will work as Researchers in the projects and are expected to assist in/contribute to at least three publications of Mantraya during the period of E-Internship. Their contribution will be acknowledged in the publications. They are also expected to assist in other projects assigned to them.
