We have partnered with several companies, NGOs and government agencies to serve as advisory members, help guide our research efforts and propose collaborative research topics. Many of our partners will also provide internship opportunities allowing trainees to gain new skills and knowledge relevant to FEWS and provide exposure to real world FEWS problems with potential to stimulate novel research ideas. The apprenticeships are intended to be career path experiences and can vary in duration from 3 weeks to 3 months. The experience should provide trainees with skills outside of those they gain via their dissertation research activities.
The InTERFEWS Program is looking for new partnerships to mentor our students. If you’d like to learn more about apprenticeship opportunities please let us know!
