Internship and career development

Sponsoring organisations have different development frameworks and programmes, and some are more intensive than others. As an SgIS scholar, you will have the opportunity to participate in at least 1 internship programme with your sponsoring organisation. You can find out more during your interview.

Your eventual job role and deployment will depend on the organisation's needs. Thus, we encourage you to discuss your career aspirations and preferences with your sponsoring organisation before graduation so that these can be factored into your eventual deployment.
