To participate in any Mitacs program, it is preferred that interns have full-time student or postdoctoral status at their academic institution. However, part-time students are also eligible for internships that do not include international travel, provided that the following conditions hold:
* They have student status at the academic institution for the duration of the internship
* They are covered under the institution’s insurance, the same as full-time students
* The institution can pay the intern a salary or stipend from the Mitacs grant
* The intern can commit to the project for the appropriate duration (BSI internships are four months and may be spread over up to six months to accommodate other commitments)
