Covid Interns is a platform connecting organisations challenged commercially and operationally by the pandemic with students for pro bono and paid project-based placements.
Over the past few months we have built a powerful network of students from some of the finest academic institutions in Europe.
Since it’s inception at the start of summer, we have received over 500 CVs from students of top universities searching for opportunities to develop their coursework skills, and have successfully made over 100 placements.
The initiative has been publicly endorsed by Trinity and UCD business schools, appeared in prominent tech blogs such as Silicon republic, and has scaled to 1000+ followers on LinkedIn.
The social impact of our work has supported over 100 businesses across 25 industries thus far.
Recently we have been accepted into the Blackstone & Techstars Fall Fellowship. Join us on the journey!
Covid-19 is decimating businesses across the world - we believe that we can help.
Sponsors would become part of a compelling socially responsible mission and avail of our student community seeking graduate opportunities & internships.
Sponsorship is crucial for continuing our mission to help impacted businesses and students.
We have set a target of raising €10,000 to launch the next iteration of Covid Interns.
This funding will cover the upcoming costs of software and operations expansion.

"The All-Ireland Business Foundation are delighted to work with Covid-Interns to offer very valuable work placements to well qualified graduates who found themselves entering the labour force at a very challenging time. We were very impressed by the overall initiative and delighted to take onboard two interns who have the skills and attributes needed to be part of our team and add value as well – all while working remotely. Most of all, they come with a great attitude and desire to learn. I was so impressed with the initiative that I’ve referred several businesses to the initiative. Well done to all involved!!!"All IrelandBusiness Foundation
