Paid Internship Program in Canada 2018-2019 by the Government of Québec is pleased to offer the International internship program to study in Canada. The FRQNT’s (Fonds de recherche du Québec – Nature et technologies) international internship aims to foster international mobility of students whose research activities are part of the scientific program of a strategic cluster funded by the FRQNT. The internship is a supplementary tool available to a strategic cluster to strengthen its position at the international level through research projects and partnerships that have already been established or which are under development.
The international internship is intended for Master’s or doctoral students enrolled full-time in a Quebec university or in a university outside Québec who meets the requirements of their program. The proposed research outlined in the application as part of the internship must be part of the scientific program of the strategic cluster. In a first step, the strategic cluster recommends a candidate and then the candidate can apply for the scholarship.
The scholarship for the internship is of a maximum value of $15,000. However, the FRQNT will allow no more than the equivalent of $2,500/month in living expenses.
