Deadline extended for research training internship applications

Applications for new Research Training Internships made available by the University of Windsor in partnership with MItacs has been extended to June 1. Note: the number of applications has been changed from 100 to 25.

Valued at $6,000 each, they are intended to support undergraduate and graduate student stipends, for both international and Canadian students. This is a rapid-response program designed to provide UWindsor students with paid research training opportunities.

To be eligible for this internship, applicants must be enrolled at the University of Windsor for the fall semester and not already be participating in another Mitacs-funded project. Students may only hold one internship application.

Eligible internships will:

  • Be supported by a faculty member eligible to hold tri-council funding
  • Last 12 to 16 weeks
  • Begin after June 1 and before Aug. 31, 2020
  • Build skillsets in project development, project management, communication, negotiation, and technical knowledge and expertise

Students should work with a supervising faculty member to prepare their applications (found on the ORIS website), and submit them to the dean of their faculty no later than 4:30 p.m. Monday, June 1.

Applications will be reviewed internally prior to being submitted to Mitacs. Should your application pass the internal review stage, students and faculty will be contacted directly by ORIS with regards to next steps. No internal ORIS form is required for this submission and eligible faculty members may support more than one internship position.
