The Indian Institute for Human Settlements (IIHS) is a national educational institution committed to the equitable, sustainable and efficient transformation of Indian settlements.
The IIHS Internship Programme provides young scholars a uniquely interdisciplinary environment for learning and participating in ongoing research and practice projects. IIHS Internships will enable you to develop further in your chosen field and broaden your horizons in related fields. It is an immersive endeavour where theory meets practice and learning is largely experiential.
The work that we do involves various facets of sustainable development ranging across climate change, economic development, environment and sustainability, law, governance and public policy, human development, urban systems and infrastructure. Apart from this, we are also involved in content development, filmmaking, editing and design.
Located in a rather verdant corner of Sadashivanagar, the IIHS campus is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and a niche library, which is open to the public. The library houses books and journals specific to different subfields of sustainable development; apart from this we have a rich repertoire of literary fiction and nonfiction works from authors both local and global.
The campus is also home to many literary and cultural events such as the City Scripts literary festival and the Urban Lens film festival. We also have weekly talks and events featuring prominent scholars, development professionals and practitioners.
The work environment fosters interest not just in one’s own field but offers opportunities to broaden one’s interests in other relevant creative spaces.
The internships will be paid positions. They will be located primarily in Bengaluru, while some will be in Delhi and Chennai.
