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”) and start-ups selected for co-investment under the Innovation and Technology Venture Fund (“ITVF investee companies”) 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.

Application

IP-ITF is open all year round. Applications should be submitted through the Innovation and Technology Commission Funding Administrative System (except for applications by ITVF investee companies which should be submitted in paper form until further notice). For details of the Programme, please refer to the “IP-ITF” Application Guide and the “IP-ITF” Application Guide for ITVF Investee Companies.
