INTERNSHIPS INTO PRACTICE
ABOUT THE INTERNSHIP
At UNADAP, there's a competitive intake and a rigorous, yet compassionate selection process. UNADAP is committed to assisting students of lower strata in life. In India, UNADAP has undertaken assisting children of workers in domestic, construction, drivers and others, with the aim of giving them a shot at a good life and to break the cycle of poverty. UNADAP appeals to Schools and Universities to assist in Admissions and scholarships for the underprivileged. Some of the noted institutions that we have worked with in the last year are, MIIM, SIGA, Harvard HPAIR, Oxford, to name a few.
UNADAP has been successful in sending one candidate to Harvard University (HPAIR), who was a school dropout. We nurtured him with compassion and encouragement.
In terms of academics, UNADAP has a highly qualified team of scientists in seven disciplines, and qualified civil and international civil servants who have served as Ambassadors, Secretaries to governments and policy makers.
Interns put inquiry and theory into practice.
Working with some of the world’s best researchers, interns learn, collaborate, and network for life. Interns not only advance their own careers, but they also contribute to the exciting R&D that our team is involved in. Check out UNADAP's Clean Energy project, "Plant-to-Fuel".
During the internship, students are paired with mentors of their respective universities, and expected to collaborate with other interns and researchers, present findings, and contribute to the vibrant life of the community.
