This is the third year that the program is available to the university’s Indigenous students.

The internship program is an exciting opportunity for Indigenous students to access unique career-related experiences in their field of study.

“The U of M has a wide range of meaningful work opportunities that we want students to know about so they consider building a career at the university after graduation,” says Darlene Smith, associate vice-president, human resources.

Placements will include the alumni and donor relations/marketing communications office; student engagement and success; animal sciences; and biosystems engineering, to name a few areas.

In addition to the work placements, every second Friday the students will participate in group development days organized by human resources. 

This year, there will be 11 summer placements. The students will be hired to work from May 4 to August 21.

All Indigenous students are encouraged to apply.

Additional program information can be found on the human resources website. Please note the work placements include eight positions that are cost-shared with human resources and seven positions that are fully-funded by departments. All students will participate together in the group programming.
