Find your own placement

As an alternative to finding a placement through the SIP’s regular internship search process, it is possible to conduct an independent placement search.

Apply to the SIP program and indicate your intention to locate your own placement. Once you have secured a placement, complete an Independent Placement Form located in SciWorks. Your department coordinator will contact the potential employer to discuss the position and ensure they are able to fulfill the responsibilities. If accepted, you will be considered officially placed and will be registered as a SIP student.
