Late Breaking Opportunity:
Autodesk Summer Internship Opportunity for
The Enable Community Foundation has been invited to submit up to 5 Proposals for Autodesk Student Expert Summer Internships. Autodesk will award $15,000 per internship to have an Autodesk Student Expert to use Autodesk software products (such as Fusion360) to work on a well defined and worthy e-NABLE project, and to write a report at the end of the Summer. The program seems to targeted toward companies and academic labs.
Autodesk doesn't promise to approve, or to fund, all 5 proposals, but we expect proposals for work similar to the (awesome!) 2015 Pilot Summer Internship projects might be approved.
- If Autodesk approves a Principal Investigator's proposal, it is posted in the Autodesk Education Expert network. (If your organization has a student with relevant expertise with Autodesk software, have them join the program! They'll be eligible, and there are additional benefits).
If a Student candidate responds to your proposal, you will negotiate salary and expenses based upon the the Autodesk award of $15,000 to your organization, applicable to Stipend, Travel, Expenses, and/or lodging.
Details about eligibility and proposals are in the attached PDF (but note that ECF's deadline is Jan 15, and for ECF, non-US organizations are eligible if you can stay within the $15,000 allocation. )
- Read the attached PDF and let us know--immediately!--if you plan to write up a competitive proposal THIS WEEK.
If we see that more than 5 proposals are likely, we will develop a process to select the top 5 for transmission to AutoDesk.
You must submit your proposal to the ECF by Friday, January 15, 2016 so we can pass vetted proposals to Autodesk by Monday Jan 17.
