Mitacs Globalink Research Internship

The Mitacs Globalink Research Internship 2024 is a Canadian initiative aimed at providing international students with education and empowerment through the teaching of Canadian research methods and techniques. This program offers a 12-week research experience to students from various disciplines, including science, engineering, mathematics, humanities, and social sciences, under the guidance of Canadian university professors or faculty members. As a fully-funded international internship, the program provides students with the opportunity to explore interdisciplinary and collaborative research projects, allowing them to search for projects within specific and general categories.

The internship program in Canada is highly beneficial for students as it offers a platform for collaboration on various projects. Interns from different universities work together and gain valuable experience, and they also have the opportunity to meet and network with peers from different countries and institutions. This collaborative internship helps them to build a global network of Mitacs Globalink alumni, which can help them in the future. Additionally, researchers from the University of Alberta and Yukon University are working with mining companies to bring vegetation back to Yukon mines. These opportunities can be life-changing for interns and allow them to contribute to significant projects that have a positive impact.
