The Crankstart Internship Programme (ex M-H)


As a Crankstart Scholar you can apply for funding to support your work placement. The awards vary from £50 to £3,200 depending on the location of the internship, the remuneration and living arrangements. Although there is no limit to the number of internship bursaries you can apply for through the Crankstart Internship Programme, priority is given to Scholars who are making a first request for financial support. Please note that we will confirm your placement with the host organisation before a bursary is paid out.

Be aware that funding will not be allocated for fee-charging internship schemes, or third-party internship recruitment organisations. 

Retrospective claims for funding will only be considered in exceptional circumstances (for example, unanticipated costs). Funding request put forward due to exceptional circumstances must be made within six months of completion of the placement. Requests put forward after this time will not be considered.
