Recent college and university graduates (any level) are eligible, at the discretion of the academic institution. The eligibility for recent grads for BSI follows the same rules as Accelerate:

• Must have status at a Canadian academic institution
• Internship must start within two years of graduation

Normally, recent graduates are eligible for one 4-6-month internship, but they may do up to three depending on the needs of the project and the discretion of the academic institution (some institutions may only allow one post-graduation internship per person).

All program expectations remain the same: the intern must have an academic supervisor and split their time between the academic institution and the partner organization.
