How to Apply

Step 1

The research internship candidate must find a willing UAlberta host supervisor and work with the host supervisor to determine a mutually agreed upon research project and duration based on the scholarship that is being applied for.

Please find our professor listings by faculty and research area on the different University of Alberta faculty websites. Then you can make connections by emailing professors you would potentially like to work with, as their contact information is on the website. When emailing them, please be sure to include:

  • your full name and contact information
  • your home University and home country
  • whether you are currently an undergraduate or graduate student
  • which year of your program you are in
  • the full name of the program you would be applying for
  • how long of a stay you wish to do research for (ex. 3 months, 6 months, etc.)
  • your ideal start date and availability
  • information for host supervisors

Step 2

 

Once you have successfully found a Host Professor at the University of Alberta for a research internship, please apply for funding at RWTH Aachen. Please contact Rene Seyfarth (Rene.Seyfarth@zhv.rwth-aachen.de) for potential funding opportunities disbursed by RWTH Aachen like the Junior Research Fellowship.

 

Step 3

If your host professor is willing to provide $2000 funding, you may apply for UARE funding from the University of Alberta International and be considered for this, in addition to the funding provided by RWTH Aachen. While the two sources of funding cannot be held concurrently, UARE and Junior Research Fellowships may be held one after the other for an extended research stay, if applicable.

Step 4

After you confirm receiving the scholarship funding from RWTH Aachen, please contact intern@ualberta.ca with the following information for further instructions:

  • Your full legal name and date of birth
  • Degree program and year in program
  • UAlberta Host professor full name
  • UAlberta Host professor’s department
  • Project title/Description of Research
  • Internship start date and end date
  • Your full mailing address in Germany
  • Copy of your funding letter
