The Internship Office is offering current undergraduates the opportunity to apply for a bursary of up to £2000 courtesy of the Victor and William Fung Foundation.

Eligible placements must commence before September 1st 2018.

To apply, please fill in the funding application form, and email it to stacey.phillington@careers.ox.ac.uk
