Mitacs Funding Internship Opportunities

Mitacs is a national, not-for-profit organization with the goal to solve organizational challenges by supporting collaborative projects between highly trained researchers and businesses, non-for-profits, municipalities, or hospitals in Canada and internationally.

Mitacs has a suite of funding opportunities for student internships in all disciplines:

Accelerate Program

Business Strategy Internship

Globalink Research Internship - Currently closed

Globalink Research Award  - Currently closed

Below are the most recent updates to the Mitacs Globalink Research Award (GRA) program and most specifically to the new opportunity with the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine. Back in early June 2022, a new partnership was announced. Following this announcement, here is additional flexibility we are happy to be offering for GRA interns in Canada enrolled in full-time studies at a Ukrainian post-secondary institution.

  • Expedite research review: The goal is a 4-week turnaround time, instead of the normal 10- to 12-week timeline.
  • Two consecutive GRAs: Students registered at Ukrainian institutions will be allowed to complete two sequential GRA projects of up to 24 weeks per project (up to 48 weeks total). GRA interns are currently only permitted to complete one unit in their life-time — this measure would enable Ukrainian interns to access a total amount of $12,000 for up to 48 weeks. To access this opportunity, applicants must include a project duration >24 weeks on the GRA application form. Project duration <24 weeks will be awarded as one unit valued at $6,000.
  • Access to Globalink Graduate Fellowship (GGF) after the GRA: Former Ukrainian GRA participants will be eligible to receive a GGF award. Interns requesting this should be directed to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for further instruction on how to fill out the GGF application form.  Currently only the Globalink Research Internship (GRI) alumni have access to GGF — this measure would enable Ukrainian GRA interns to access a total amount of $15,000 if they decide to stay in Canada to complete a full master’s or PhD program, or postdoctoral fellowship at any Mitacs partner institution.

Do not hesitate to contact me directly if you have any questions. For general questions about the program, please contact the Programs team: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
