20 x $3000 grants available to intern in India
Want to study abroad in India? We have 20 x $3000 travel grants available for the Centurion Challenges in India, a New Colombo Plan opportunity to combine work, study and leisure. This program is offered in partnership with Centurion Globe.
You’ll spend just over three weeks in Bhubaneswar, a city in Odisha, India’s second poorest state, where 25% of the population is either tribal or indigenous. You’ll be based at Centurion University working on a community challenge with a small team of like-minded students.
It could be up-scaling a rickshaw enterprise, promoting village artists and musicians, improving the packaging and branding of local products, or helping with health promotion for women and children.
With six focus areas to choose from, whichever project you select, you’ll be making an immediate and tangible difference to the community.
You’ll also get to partake in various tourist activities such as exploring the Khandagiri caves and the Konark Sun Temple, visiting the Bhubaneswar to see the famous white tiger, relaxing on Puri beach and experiencing the artisan district of Balasore.
The program is available in Trimester 3 to all undergraduate students, and travel takes place from Friday 5 January 2018 until Monday 29 January 2018. Preference will be given to students who are doing the program for credit: the units on offer are APE201 Individual Professional Project and MWL301 Team Internship.
For fees, inclusions and exclusions, more information and application details, visit the Deakin Abroad application portal. The application deadline is Friday 28 September 2017, so get in quick.
This program has a rolling admission process, so the sooner you apply, the more chance you will have to secure your spot and receive a travel grant. You can also receive points toward your Global Citizenship Program by participating in this project.
