About the programme

  • The Black internship programme -apart of the 10,000 Black Interns initiative– provides an exciting new endeavour for Black data scientists who are currently heavily under-represented within the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM community). The Balck Internship Programme one of several steps that we are taking to start to address this underrepresentation.

    The programme runs from 28 June 2021 to 06 August 2021. Interns will be recruited and employed by an Alliance member organisation, and will participate in a programme of training activities throughout the internship.

  • ** Applications for 2021 are now closed **

    Interns will be involved in conducting research and analyses using health data. They will develop approaches which will influence how health and care are provided. We encouraged individuals to apply if they are a Black person currently studying at a university in the U.K., on a gap year or recently graduated from a U.K. university (2019 and 2020). The programme is open to Black persons of all academic backgrounds, but is ideally suited to individuals with a degree in maths, biological sciences, and engineering or computer sciences.

    During the application process, applicants will firstly answer some questions that are related to their day-to-day jobs. These answers will then go through our de-biased sift process – all answers will be anonymised, randomised and then scored by members of our team. If applicants are shortlisted, we’ll invite them to the next stage, which includes an online interview.
