Mitacs Globalink invites undergraduate students from around the world to experience Canada as a leading destination for research & innovation. This competitive program pairs top-ranked students and faculty at Canadian universities for a 12-week research project of mutual interest in the period of May to September.
Faculty members benefit from students’ international perspectives and experience, and can evaluate potential graduate students while demonstrating the breadth of Canadian research opportunities.
Globalink Research Interns network with professors, government representatives, and business leaders, and develop their skills in a variety of professional development workshops. The experience is enriched by the presence of Globalink Student Advisors who help interns acclimate to life on campus and in Canada.
In summer 2013, Mitacs Globalink will welcome students from India, China, Brazil, and Mexico.
