Program Structure

The internship program is an unpaid apprenticeship program. However, there will be opportunities for compensation for work on specific projects of the Research Institute that require additional student labour. Second-year student interns will be given priority for paid projects.

Internships with the Research Institute are eligible to current students of the Dominica State College and require a minimum commitment of 5 hours per week during the regular semester to work and learn in the practice-based research environment of the Institute.

A certificate of completion will be awarded to students who successfully complete a minimum total of 150 hours during their tenure of study at Dominica State College. A special recognition ceremony will take place at the beginning of each academic year to recognize students who have completed the internship program during the previous academic year.
