What does it cost to host an Aurora intern?

An agreement in principle has been reached with the Commonwealth to extend the Aurora Internship Program (the Program) through to the end of February 2019.  One of the agreed outcomes of the new contract supports improved outcomes for Indigenous organisations via intern support and cost effective recruitment. 

Host organisations that are not Indigenous agree to pay the Aurora administration/management fee, which as of 15 March 2017 is set:

  • For Not-For-Profits at $700 + GST for up to 2 interns per round, plus $350 + GST for each additional intern
  • For other Host organisations $1,000 + GST for up to 2 interns, plus $500 + GST for each additional intern.

Any fee increases will be discussed with the host organisation prior to the commencement of a placement round.  Host organisations will be invoiced once placement/s have been confirmed.

All Host organisations are encouraged to consider funding airfare/accommodation and/or a weekly stipend for the interns, if this funding is available.
