The MITACS Globalink Research Internship gives high-achieving senior undergraduates from Australia, Brazil, China, France, Germany, India, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, and Tunisia the opportunity to complete a 12-week research project at one of 46 Canadian host universities. Approved students travel to Canada between May/June 2017 where they work with a faculty supervisor and other researchers at their host universities.

The application is open to Australian students who will be in the 2nd or 3rd year of their course in 2017 and have a Distinction average (75% or more). Globalink Research Internships are open to various academic disciplines including engineering, life sciences, mathematical sciences, natural sciences, social sciences and humanities. Students must go through a selection process and be endorsed by The University of Sydney prior to submitting an application to MITACS. Interested students should complete the expression of interest by midnight Wednesday 31 August.
