Awards may be interrupted for an approved full-time internship (such as Mitacs, other research related internships and the Transformative Talent Internship).
If you hold an FGS award your award payment will stop during an authorized full-time paid internship of up to one year and be reinstated once you return to full-time studies. For external awards, refer to the agency’s award holder’s guide for more information
Part-time internships: Consult with the Awards team to confirm whether or not a part-time internship will impact your eligibility to hold an award.
Program required Internships: If your internship is required by program, such as Clinical Psychology, Counselling Psychology and School and Applied Child Psychology, your award will continue to be paid unless not allowed by the funder’s regulations.
You may be able to defer your award if you have to delay your registration start date and you have been offered an FGS award or an external award administered through the Graduate Scholarship Office (as long as the terms of reference allow).
- An external award: refer to the agency’s award holder’s guide for more information on deferring your award.
- An FGS award: you may defer the award for up to one year when the award terms of reference allow it
