Engineering a Better World Internships - deadline 31 January 2023
The Engineering a Better World Internships place groups of talented engineering students from UK universities with alumni of the Academy's Africa Prize for Engineering Innovation for a fully-funded work placement between six to eight weeks over the summer in order to:
- Support the entrepreneurs with technical assistance
- Enable the exchange of knowledge through partnership
- Inspire the students to pursue a career in challenge-led innovation for sustainable development
Communications support - rolling basis
Over the years, alumni have often reached out to the Proof Africa team for communication and marketing advice, and they've always been happy to lend a hand where possible. We have now formalised this support, and the Proof team have additional resources to help any Africa Prize entrepreneur with advice and input on comms issues.
Please feel free to reach out to them - and please do plan in advance where possible, as their time per month for this support is limited.
With support from the UK Government’s Global Challenges Research Fund, Africa Prize alumni have already been supported to respond to COVID-19 through Project CARE
