NRCan Internship Funding still available

Hi Funds Fans!  I hope you all have a lovely weekend planned.  Here’s a good read to go along with your morning coffee 🙂

Natural Resources Canada has announced that funding for the 2013/14 Science and Technology Internship Program is still available! Please note that their extended deadline to submit a project proposal is July 31, 2013; however, projects will be funded on a first-come, first-served basis, depending on funding availability. Apply now!

The Science and Technology Internship Program (STIP) provides an opportunity to recent graduates in science or engineering to gain relevant and meaningful work experiences within their field of studies.   Any non-federal government organization (private company, university or college, non-profit organization and provincial or municipal government) can become a partner of Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) when it hires an eligible intern to work on research and development projects that are within the mandate of NRCan. Partners can receive a contribution payment for a portion of the intern’s salary. The intern is an employee of the partner.

The maximum contribution per internship from the Science and Technology Internship Program fund is $13,200 over a maximum of 52 weeks.
