Te Pūnaha Matatini Summer Internship Programme 2018-19
Te Pūnaha Matatini is a New Zealand Centre of Research Excellence with researchers and students based all over New Zealand. We coordinate an internship scheme for partner organisations including iwi, Ministries, government departments, the defence forces and private companies. In 2017, over 80 students applied and we placed over 20 students at 7 partner organisations. Most of our interns were placed in small teams of 3 students rather than as individuals. Students were from all over New Zealand, predominantly studying STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) based subjects.
