Payment information

There is no hosting or facilitation fee charged for the EduCARE India internship program.

However, every intern has to pay a one off standard fee of $570 USD* for student / employment visa sponsorship documentation, group insurance and legal support retainer fees and internship certification – validation fee. This fee is a one-time only payment for your internship when your selection is confirmed and before we send the visa documents.  It is valid for 1-year. This fee remains the same no matter if your intended internship stay is 3 months or 12 months. No other fee is charged.

No fee is charged for your accommodation, work-space, internet, and local transport at project sites. These expenses are borne by our ViKAS Dev SEVA Funds (created from our social enterprise initiatives or invested by the social entrepreneurs). 

Fee breakdown:

Group legal insurance fee $300 USD
Visa Documentation fee $150 USD
Internship certification and validation fee $120 USD
Total $570

As a self-sustainable NGO, whilst we cover the costs of accommodation, work place transportation and communications – we ask all interns to cover these external costs themselves.  This cost is similar to paying for health or travel insurance – it offers some protection to both you and the organisation in case of any legal emergency.

Refund policy

Our legal and visa documentation processes are outsourced by external consultants and retainers.  Thus, EduCARE India does not offer any refunds once your placement is confirmed as we are unable to absorb these external costs within the organisation.   In some exceptional circumstances for compassionate reasons, we may be able to offer a 50% refund, however this is at the sole discretion of the accounts department and will be processed in the next financial quarter after the refund request is made.  Please note that no refund request will be entertained in case of visa rejection by the Indian consulate. Under no circumstances will the program fee be refunded to the intern after the internship start date.

* Please note there is no legal insurance or visa documentation fee for Indian nationals or PIO/OCI card holders
