Internship Opportunities

Practice your skills and gain new ones by doing an internship! As a graduate student you may be eligible for funding to pursue summer internships.

Skill Internships

Transformative Talent Skills Internships (TTI) expose graduate students to meaningful career opportunities and help bridge the gap between academia and the workplace. It doesn't need to be related to your research, although it can be. A skills internship helps you explore career options and gives you practical hands-on experience that will help you in your academic and professional career.

Research Internships

Put your talent to work with a paid research internship at an organization that needs your expertise. Research internships are funded through Mitacs Canada.
