The Southern African Institute for Policy and Research (SAIPAR) aims to be Southern Africa’s leading research authority, knowledge centre, and dialogue facilitator concerning policy-oriented issues and development. SAIPAR coordinates an Internship Programme for recent graduates of undergraduate programmes in the social sciences and development. As a function of its capacity building programme, SAIPAR’s internship programme is designed to give post-baccalaureate students the opportunity to build research, publishing, and administration skills in an academic setting. It aims at providing interns an opportunity to share their experiences and gain and improve skills in research in the social sciences and development. This is done through research assignments and working on SAIPAR programmes. SAIPAR accepts post-baccalaureate and graduate interns from Zambian, Southern African, and foreign universities.
