Mitacs Globalink : Research Internships 2017

Mitacs Globalink Research Internships is now accepting submissions from faculty for 12-week research projects suitable for an international undergraduate student in the summer of 2017.

We invite faculty to activate their accounts on the 2017 Globalink Faculty Application portal. They will be able to view their previous project submissions from 2014, 2015, and 2016 re-submit them, and/or submit new projects. If faculty experience technical difficulties, they can email

As in 2015, Mitacs will not be collecting project submissions via PDF or web form; the 2017 portal will allow professors to save their submissions and submit their projects once each one is complete.

The deadline for project submissions is June 16, 2016, at 5 p.m. PDT.
