Knowledge Community on Children in India (KCCI)
Internship Programme 2010
Scheduled to run from 31 May to 3 August 2010, amongst eligible interested students

 

Background

UNICEF India Country Office invites applications for a full-time Internship programme from 31 May to 3 August 2010. Conceived as part of a broader initiative to build a Knowledge Community on Children in India (KCCI), UNICEF India partners with research and academic institutions to encourage young students and scholars from around the world to engage in development issues pertaining to India’s children and women.

The internship offers an opportunity to explore issues related to child rights in India across a variety of areas: child protection, health, nutrition, education, HIV/AIDS, and water and sanitation. The assignment involves a combination of desk and field work at the district or village level, with interns being grouped into teams that are based in field offices and work under the supervision of selected research institutions/non-governmental organisations.

Expected Outputs

The expected output from each team is a 30-page research paper along a pre-determined thematic research framework.

Eligibility

Applicants should be enrolled in a Masters-level graduate programme or a higher degree program, in one of the following disciplines: anthropology, child psychology, demography, economics, education, engineering, human rights, international development, journalism, legal studies, public health, sociology, statistics, rural development, social work, or any other relevant area.

Those who have completed their Masters level graduate programmes in 2009 are also eligible to apply. Applicants are expected to work in multi-cultural environment and establish harmonious and effective working relationships with individuals from different backgrounds. Applicants should have excellent command of English, both written and spoken. Short-listed applicants whose English is not the first language may be subject to a telephone interview.

Location

Selected interns will be placed in research institutions across states where UNICEF has a presence. Possible locations include Hyderabad (Andhra Pradesh), Patna (Bihar), Ranchi (Jharkand), Gandhinagar (Gujarat), Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh), Mumbai (Maharashtra), Bhubhaneswar (Orissa), Chennai (Tamil Nadu), Kolkata (West Bengal), Jaipur (Rajasthan), Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh) and New Delhi.

Selected interns must be willing to go to any of the locations mentioned. Interns will report to New Delhi for an initial orientation before traveling to their assigned duty stations where they will be based and from where they will be expected to travel to village / district field sites. Applicants need to bear in mind that the fieldwork of 10-15 days will entail time spent in challenging situations such as remote villages with basic amenities.

Support

All interns are expected to cover costs such as travel from home to duty station and back, as well as accommodation and food for the entire duration of the internship programme.

However, UNICEF will provide Rs. 20,000 as partial support to all interns for the two-month period. UNICEF India will also meet the expenses incurred on the following: (a) travel from Delhi to the assigned state capital after the orientation workshop, (b) field trips from the state capital to the field and, (c) travel from state capital to Delhi for the closing workshop at the end of the internship programme.

Insurance

UNICEF does not accept responsibility for medical insurance. Interns must ensure that they carry appropriate medical and life insurance coverage for the entire period of the internship, and provide proof of this prior to the start of the programme, without which they will not be able to participate.

Application

Interested and eligible students should submit the following:
• A completed application form (Download)
A ‘Statement of Purpose’ indicating your area of interest, relevant skills, experience and motivation for applying to this programme. This should not be more than 500 words.
• An up-to-date official university transcript
• Two letters of recommendation that assess your suitability for research and fieldwork
• A writing sample of no more than 5 pages
The dates of this programme are non-negotiable; interns are expected to attend the entire duration of the programme and to work full-time on the internship.

Applications are invited for 2010 Programme from students enrolled in a Masters level graduate programme, until 22nd of January 2010. Those who have completed their Masters level graduate programme in 2009 are also eligible to apply.

Last, but not least, I would like thank all of you who participated in
evaluation of the Internship Programme and the website. Your suggestion
