GSP - Internship Programme


The Internship Programme aims to encourage university graduates to pursue a career in innovation and technology (I&T) and nurture more I&T talents. The Internship Programme consists of the following two sub-programmes:

1. Internship Programme (Innovation and Technology Fund) (“IP-ITF”)

Introduction

Under IP-ITF, organisations undertaking research and development (R&D) projects funded by the Innovation and Technology Fund (ITF) can recruit graduates from local universities as interns to assist in the R&D projects.

  • Each ITF project can engage up to 2 interns at any one time.
  • The maximum internship period for each intern is 24 months.
  • The maximum monthly internship allowance is HK$16,000 for graduates with a Bachelor’s degree and HK$19,000 for graduates with a Master’s or higher degree from a local university.
