Faculties and units can participate in the 2020 Indigenous summer student internship program
Submit funding applications by January 27
The Indigenous summer student internship program (ISSIP) will be once again offered by human resources.
The internship is a great opportunity for U of M Indigenous students to receive valuable experience in their field of study. The program will run for a total of 16 weeks, commencing May 4. Interns will work nine days during every two-week period and participate in a group development day once during that same period.
Fifty per cent of interns’ salary will be reimbursed through human resources, while the host faculties or units are responsible for covering the remaining cost.
A total of eight internships are available for funding. Seven additional spots will be opened in the program if faculties or units choose to fully fund their own internship.
“We’re excited to be offering the program for a third year,” says Darlene Smith, associate vice-president, human resources.
“It’s great opportunity for Indigenous students to learn about the many career opportunities on campus, while gaining valuable experience in their field of study,” adds Smith.
All faculties and units are invited to submit funding applications no later than Monday, January 27.
Students will be able to find the job postings on UM Careers by Friday, February 14.
