About Internship Opportunity

The IIHS Internship Programme provides young scholars a uniquely interdisciplinary environment for learning and participating in ongoing research and practice projects. IIHS Internships will enable you to develop further in your chosen field and broaden your horizons in related fields. It is an immersive endeavour where theory meets practice and learning is largely experiential.

The work that we do involves various facets of sustainable development ranging across climate change, economic development, environment and sustainability, law, governance and public policy, human development, urban systems and infrastructure. Apart from this, we are also involved in content development, filmmaking, editing and design.

The internships will be paid positions. They will be located primarily in Bengaluru, while some will be in Delhi and Chennai.
