Graduate Student Internship Program (GSIP)

Students

GSIP provides opportunities for UAlberta graduate students to gain valuable work experience through paid, meaningful internships in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors.


Employers

GSIP provides funding for employers to support a business need.

 


Background

FGSR has partnered with the University of Alberta's Career Centre to develop the Graduate Student Internship Program (GSIP), to provide paid flexible work experience opportunities for UAlberta graduate students. Interdisciplinary work placements will be available throughout the year to allow graduate students to strengthen their professional and transferable skills. 

GSIP is not a co-op program.

Internship details

Up to $8,000 in matching funding is available for employers to hire an intern for up to 640 hours based on a wage of $25/hour (the expected minimum).

Internship placement terms (e.g. duration, number of hours of work/week, qualifications, scope of work performed) will vary based on the needs of employers and students. Applications are ongoing. Employers may contact the GSIP Advisor to create and post a job placement opportunity. GSIP is made possible by a Government of Alberta grant.
