This study assessed motivational factors for internees’ participation in internship training programmes in selected universities of South-western Nigeria. Specifically, personal characteristics of participants and factors associated with internees’ participation in internship training programmes were investigated. Multistage sampling technique was employed to select two hundred and sixty seven internees from the selected universities.namely Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Federal University of Agriculture Abeokuta (FUNAB) and Ekiti State University (EKSU). Data collected were analyzed using descriptive statistics. The findings indicate that the age of the respondents in all the universities sampled ranged between 24 and 25 years. More male than female respondents participated in the internship programme in most of the selected universities.  The result of the findings, therefore revealed that internees were motivated by supervisors’ attitude, facilities provided for the internship training programme and the zeal of internees to practicalise training received. It is thereby recommended that managers of internship programmes provide the requisite funding to enhance supervisors’ positive attitude and arouse internees’ interest.
