Mitacs Globalink Research Internship 2024 is an initiative of Canada to empower and educate international students by teaching them Canadian Research Methods and techniques. The Globalink Research internship in Canada for international students offers a 12-week research program to interns under the supervision of Canadian University professors or facility members in numerous disciplines. The interns can continue their summer internships in science, engineering, maths, humanities, and social sciences. The fully-funded international internship also has many interdisciplinary and collaborative research projects which means that the students can search for the project in specific as well as general categories.

The fully-funded internship for students is available in almost 70 universities all over Canada. There are many academic partners from around the world who also part in the research projects. The top internship in Canada provides the ideas and techniques of the academic partners too while completing their internship projects in a Canadian university. The academic partners include Universities Australia, Brazil’s Araucaria Foundation, The China Scholarship Council, Columbia’s Ministry of Science, Technology, and Innovation, Fulbright Canada, and Universities UK International, etc. These international partners support the Globalink internship program.

The best internship program in Canada provides students from different universities a platform to work together on a project. The students have life-changing opportunities from this international paid internship because they come in contact with others from different countries and institutes. Through this Collaborative internship, they become able to build a global network of Mitacs Globalink alumni network and cooperate for a better future. For example, a Harvard student has worked with Queen’s University lab to design an instrument for rapid screening of pathogens that cause Lyme disease. Similarly, researchers from the University of Alberta and Yukon University are working with mining companies in order to bring vegetation back to Yukon mines.
