Posted February 10, 2018 08:12:58The internet is going to hell, but it won’t go to Canberra very soon.
That’s the message from the new web development internship in Canberra.
It is the result of a $50,000 grant from the Government’s Digital Transformation Fund (DTF) which was awarded to the University of Canberra.
The grant is for the duration of an internship, which will be a two-year project, starting in October 2018.
Internship participants will receive a $10,000 payment towards the cost of the internships, which include food and accommodation, training and work experience.
It also covers travel costs, accommodation and travel related fees.
The money will be used to fund the cost to the interns, with the money from the grant being used to pay the interns’ tuition, costs and costs of living in Canberra, including a $30,000 cost of living allowance.
The DTF has allocated funding to provide a range of technical and creative opportunities for people from the region, which includes providing free training for young people in the region.
More to come.
