Mitacs Research Training Awards - Summer 2020

mitacs logo

Lakehead is collaborating with Mitacs to offer a new program for research internships to take place this summer.

The purpose of the program is to give Lakehead students the opportunity to gain hands-on research experience and learn new skills under the supervision of a Lakehead faculty member. Students propose research projects of 12-16 weeks in length; projects can begin as soon as approval is received from Mitacs, but must begin no later than August 31, 2020.

Eligibility: Full-time undergraduate and graduate students (including international students) are eligible, as long as they are currently registered (previous winter semester for undergrads, and spring/summer for grad students) and intend to return in the fall. Recent graduates who are committed to beginning a graduate program at Lakehead in the fall are also eligible. Students need to find a Lakehead faculty member who is willing to supervise the project.
