Faculties and units can participate in the 2023 Indigenous Summer Student Internship Program
Submit funding applications by Feb. 22
This year, the Indigenous summer student internship program (ISSIP) will be once again offered by Human Resources.
The internship is a great opportunity for UM Indigenous students to receive valuable experience in their field of study.
The program will run for a total of 16 weeks, commencing May 8. Interns will work 35 hours per week in their respective internship. A total of eight internships are available for funding, with 50% of interns’ salary to be reimbursed through Human Resources, while the host faculties or units are responsible for covering the remaining cost.
“We’re really pleased to be offering the internship program once again,” says Tamara Cardinal, Indigenous HR Consultant.
“This continues to be a wonderful opportunity for Indigenous students to learn about the many career opportunities at UM, while gaining valuable experience in their fields of study or related areas,” she says.
All faculties and units are invited to submit funding applications no later than Wednesday, February 22.
Students will be able to find the job postings on UM Careers by Friday, March 3.
Application forms and additional information about the program can be found on the Indigenous Summer Student Internship Program UM Intranet site.
