FIN internships or training provide a unique chance to embark on a self-exploration journey. Interns are given many opportunities and options to discover their interests, strengths and abilities, which will help them better understand what they want to do in life and why. That said, since we are a small charity, we do not have the means to pay our interns. However, we will do our best to improve their employability skills. This is the commitment we make to each and every intern who works sincerely with us. Interns who opt to come to the village will be provided boarding and lodging during their period of stay.
For students interested in academic research, and with the necessary research capabilities, we also offer the option of a Dissertation Track. Students opting for this will get an opportunity to write a research dissertation on a policy topic of relevance to India, using Kameswaram as a case study. Students planning to pursue a Masters or Phd in the future will greatly benefit from this research exposure with regular guidance from Dr. Shyama.
