Call for Applications for SSRE Internships under its Campaign for the Promotion of Cross-Cultural Understanding

Society for Social Regeneration & Equity (SSRE) invites applications from postgraduate students for unpaid non-residential internships as part of its campaign to promote cross-cultural understanding. Interns would be expected to rope in foreign students enrolled at institutions in India to volunteer to speak about their culture, values, family life and their experiences in India, at campuses across the country, and entertain questions, with the aim of breaking the stereotypes and dispelling the misconceptions Indians often have of foreigners, which sometimes lead to violent clashes. Each intern would be expected to organize at least two or four such events involving foreign students every month at their campus.

Every intern will be expected to submit a detailed report at the end of each month and a six-month report at the end of the fellowship tenure. At the completion of the six-month internship, the intern would be awarded a certificate and a testimonial.
Application should include the following:

  • Curriculum Vitae
  • A scanned image of the Student Identity Card
  • Essay explaining why the applicant is interested in promoting cross-cultural understanding and what they intend to achieve by it and how. The applicant should explain their plan of action clearly with a tentative schedule.

The shortlisted applicants would be asked to come with their original documents for a round of interviews. Following which the selected candidates will be informed through email.

Applications should be emailed to with the subject heading “SSRE Internship Application”.
