The Crankstart Internship Programme - Employer Information
Thanks to a generous donation by Sir Michael Moritz and Ms Harriet Heyman, the Crankstart Scholarship offers a programme of enhanced support to UK resident students studying for their first undergraduate degree from low-income backgrounds.
The Crankstart Internship Programme provides additional funding, opportunities to take part in volunteering activities, and the opportunity to access internships during the Christmas, Easter and summer vacations, through dedicated support from the Internship Office
Holders of the Crankstart Scholarship are encouraged to gain work experience during their time at Oxford, and funding and support are available to help them do so. The Crankstart Internship Programme has been established to enable the scholars to take advantage of this opportunity by undertaking internships or work shadowing placements with a variety of organisations offering internships exclusively to these students.
In the academic year 2018-19, over 100 internships were offered to Crankstart Scholars with employers such as Deutsche Bank, the Victoria & Albert Museum, Orrick Herrington and Sutcliffe, CERN and Visa.
Internships can take place in the Christmas and Easter vacations (for up to 3 weeks) and the long summer vacation (for 1 – 12 weeks).
