Placement Fees

All interns are asked to make a contribution towards their placement costs. DiA runs on a not-for-profit basis and this money covers the cost of running the programme. We provide fundraising support and guidance to ensure no one is financially excluded, and encourage all interns to fundraise the required contribution.



Two month placement cost for 2016: £800

Six month placement cost for 2016: £1800


Fee breakdown

The placement fees cover the cost to DiA for coordinating the programme and the costs to our partners for hosting interns. We ensure that all our partners receive a financial contribution to cover the resources that they provide when hosting our interns. For many of our partners this financial contribution supports their activities and is valued alongside the time and skills that our interns give.
