Hi Martin, thanks for your interest but unfortunately as a small organisation with very limited funding, we are unable to offer a stipend for interns at this time. We encourage interns to fundraise for their own placement or seek a grant that support such activities. We wish you the best of luck in your search for a suitable position.
