Camvol was established in 2006, and has sent students to India every year till 2019-20. In 2020, placements were offered remotely, due to travel restrictions because of the Covid pandemic.

Since its inception, Camvol has sent 180 Cambridge students for summer internships with organisations in India (think tanks, research NGOs and law firms), from the full range of subjects and Colleges. Over the years, students have been extremely appreciative of Camvol’s opportunities (see Testimonials), and Camvol is working to ensure greater visibility to such schemes as a part of the widening participation agenda, future employability and career development.
