In an effort to diversify the policy space, provide on-the-job experience, and promote thought leadership, ORF offers internships to young scholars and students from diverse backgrounds, to work with various ORF centres, programmes and initiatives. Interns engage with a variety of tasks that reflect the organisation’s functions to support the centre, programme or initiative that they have been assigned to.
Selected candidates are attached to specific supervisors across ORF’s research, communications, and forums structure with expertise in verticals compatible with the former’s inclinations. Interns are expected to work on and author an independent research article (of 800-1500 words) under the mentorship of their assigned supervisor, which will later be published under their name if it passes ORF’s editorial and review process.
Interns will work out of the ORF offices in Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkata. This is a physical and full time internship.
Candidates are required to apply for an internship 30 days before their intended starting date.
