If there are any questions or doubts on login to the new Internship Placement System (IPS) or filling in the internship job posting, please click here for the list of frequently asked questions (FAQ).

The primary objective of internship is to expose students to meaningful and relevant workplace attachment to better connect their learning to the workplace and deepen their skills, so that they are better prepared for their transition to the workplace after graduation.

Grant/Subsidy Information

Please refer to the Internship Request schedule as above.

SMEs can receive up to 70% funding support covering the internship allowance by taking up the grant offered by Enterprise SG – Global Ready Talent Programme (ESG GRT), previously known as SPRING SME Talent Programme (STP).

For any enquiries on the ESG GRT Programme, please contact the relevant Trade Associations and Chambers (TACs) listed for more info.

Please take note of some requirements as below:

Internship-Grant

To apply for ESG GRT Grant, companies would need to go through a 3-phase application process:

Phase 1
SMEs will need to be an approved member of ESG GRT Programme at least 4 weeks before internship starts. Below are the steps usually involved in Phase 1.

GRTPhase1

Phase 2
MEs will need to submit an internship job posting at the ESG GRT Portal to be approved by the relevant TAC and EnterpriseSG. The internship job posting will require at least 7 working days for approval. Below are the steps usually involved in Phase 2.

GRTPhase2

Phase 3
Upon approval of job posting in the EnterpriseSG Portal, the SMEs can then apply for the funding through the Portal using the confirmed Placement Email or Letter from SP, which requires another 7 working days for approval.

Overall, SMEs will need to start the funding support application at least 14 working days from Phase 2 before internship starts.

Once internship has started, SMEs will not be qualified to apply for ESG GRT Grant.
