The program, delivered by veski with support from the Office of the Lead Scientist Victoria, provided organisations with talented higher degree students and was an alternative, cost effective solution for a research challenge or problem facing your business.

Female honours and masters students, and their university supervisors, come from STEM disciplines to partner with industry through short-term (4 month) focused research internships.

The internships were also supported by funding for SMEs from the Victorian Government. 

Benefits

By hosting an inspiring women industry intern you could have solved a problem facing your organisation, or improve a process that could deliver increased profits and business performance.

The internships also provided a new pool of talented individuals from which you couold have recruited future employees.  You may also have benefited from reduced pressures related to managing the expenses and paperwork associated with engaging a new industry intern.
