Visiting Student and Internship Programs

China Scholarship Council (CSC) Funded Internships


The China Scholarship Council provides funding to undergraduate students from Double First-Class Initiative universities in China to conduct research ­at UAlberta under the supervision of faculty members who are experts in their field.

Students gain hands-on, practical experience in their academic discipline and receive a stipend. The China Scholarship Council provides financial support for up to 30 students from eligible Chinese universities to participate in research projects at the University of Alberta.

Internships are 3 calendar months in duration and typically take place from early July until October. Exact internship dates are dependent on the flexibility of the supervising professor.

University of Alberta International provides full support for participants before, during and after their placement. A formal orientation, professional development seminars, academic networking opportunities, and a poster symposium are offered to program participants.

Opportunities to participate in cultural and social events such as city festivals or day trips to nearby attractions are offered on a weekly basis. A chance to purchase tickets for our trip to the Rocky Mountains is made available to every intern.
