Deadline extended: WISE Program 2020 – Call for Internship Proposals


Would you like to be a mentor?

Call for Internship Proposals – December 15, 2019

WISE is a four-week community-based internship program for children of KAUST residents.  Applications are open to TKS and out-of-Kingdom high school students who are currently in grades 10-12. The program is also open to dependent undergraduate university students (age 25 and under).

From creating a video about life in the community, to studying the potential of ether-based bio-fuels, WISE interns have the opportunity to gain a wealth of experience within our University and our community. Eighty-three students successfully completed the program in 2019, which included on the job training and mentorship, optional training such as First Aid and a bowling social event organized by two of our WISE Interns.

The 2020 program will run from July 5 to July 29, 2020, and departments are invited to complete and submit their online proposal form for internship opportunities for the WISE 2020 program. 

The deadline for proposals has been extended to January 16, 2020.

Please read the WISE 2020 information leaflet for further information and key dates.  If you would like to learn more, visit our WISE page or contact us at

*WISE is a program delivered by Community Life in collaboration with The KAUST School.
