The application period for the Great Minds Student Internships in 2022 is now open.

Great Minds Student Internships

The Great Minds project is a competition for students from Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Africa to apply for 3- to 6-month internships in one of IBM’s research labs in Zurich, Nairobi, or Johannesburg.

It offers students a once-in-a-lifetime chance to work with world-class scientists at the world’s premier industrial IT research organization.

The actual start time and length will be determined in consultation with the successful candidates, taking into consideration their academic responsibilities as well as IBM personnel availability.


  • The winners will receive a lump sum payment to cover travel fees as well as compensation that covers the cost of living in Switzerland, Kenya, or South Africa, as appropriate.
  • For the qualified individuals, IBM will also get the requisite visas and work permits.

For more than a decade, IBM Research has been hosting Great Minds internships.

Universities gain from this program because Great Minds winners return with a valuable grasp of real-world challenges, innovative IBM technology, and relationships across IBM Research.
