Does the COVID-19 outbreak affect the Summer 2021 internships?
INTERNaction will provide internships for Summer 2021. However, taking into consideration the COVID-19 outbreak, we cannot assure you that all internships in summer 2021 will take place. The health and safety of students and NGOs members is the highest priority of INTERNaction. Hence, we continuously monitor the situation via constant contact with our partner NGOs and will keep everyone informed should changes or cancellations be necessary. Currently, the applications are partially still open, so if you are interested in having a summer internship to change your future, apply now!
What is the role of INTERNaction?
INTERNaction is an intermediary service which connects (for free) applicants with the NGOs providing internships. INTERNaction has agreements with the NGOs regarding a specific number of secured spots for applicants applying via INTERNaction. Nevertheless, we cannot guarantee that you will receive an internship spot as the number is limited and the final selection is done by the NGOs themselves.
The successful applicant shall sign a contract with the NGO. INTERNaction is not be a party to the contract. The successful applicant communicates with the NGO and agree on the time and duration of the internship.
There will be no remuneration for the internships. The successful applicant is responsible for financing the internship and his stay in the country (including visa, vaccinations, transport, accommodation, food, and health insurance etc.). The successful applicant is responsible for obtaining visa, required vaccinations, health insurance and accommodation before the start of the internship. INTERNaction does not assume responsibility for any of the abovementioned.
In case of emergency situations during the duration of internship, or unforeseen circumstances, the successful applicant is responsible for himself unless stated otherwise in the contract with the NGO. INTERNaction does not assume any responsibility.
