The International Development Research Centre (IDRC) is a Canadian organization created to help developing countries use science and technology to find practical, long-term solutions to the social, economic, and environmental problems they face. Applications have been invited for the 2010 IDRC's Internship competition.

The competition attracts many highly qualified candidates. Those selected are assigned to various program initiatives to gain experience in an international development organization. The main goal of the Internship Awards is to provide exposure to research for

DISRUPT THE STATUS QUO!

     
1.

Ideas are not enough. You must be action oriented to improve your future.

 

 
2.

Don't just think but act. You get results not only from thinking but from acting.

 

 
3.

You have ideas. You want to achieve. You want opportunity.

 

 
4.

But what are you still doing in your comfort zone? The comfort zone is a dangerous place.

 

 
5.

"I wanted to", "I was going to" cannot put on a light bulb, not to talk of moving you forward.

 

 
6.

Aren't you tired of hoping and criticizing? Stop defending status quo that locks you down.

 

 
7.

GO on the offensive now with IT Education and Empowerment.

 

 
8.

What is the use of ideas without action?

 

 
9.

Start becoming the achiever you deserve to be.

 

 
10.

MAKE SURE THERE IS NO STANDING ROOM FOR EXCUSES.
