Mitacs Accelerate Research Internships

Yukon Government is providing $30,000/year to UAlberta North to support Research Internships advancing two-eyed seeing under the Mitacs Accelerate Program. Funding provided by Yukon government will be, at minimum, matched by funding from the Mitacs Accelerate program. Under the Mitacs Accelerate program, internships start at four months and can scale up to longer timeframes. Typically, Mitacs and partners each pay 50% of the $15,000 cost of an internship. Yukon government’s contribution will be put towards offsetting the required financial contributions from partners. A minimum of 4 and up to 8 internships annually will be supported with the Yukon government’s contribution and will be located within eligible Yukon-based partner organizations. Partner (host) organizations include eligible for-profit corporations and not-for-profit organization.
