Each student funded by the Ufor program is expected to complete a 1 to 3 month internship with a partner to better understand the partner’s issues and to foster direct interactions and knowledge transfer. Individuals from partner organizations and future employers will also be invited to spend time within the Ufor program and deliver courses as part of peer-to-peer learning and interaction with researchers and students.
