mitacs accelerate program

Mitacs Accelerate supports collaborative research between graduate students or postdoctoral fellows, a faculty supervisor, and a nonacademic partner.

MITACS and the participating organization will contribute $7,500 each to the successful applicant. Placements are for 4 months, with the student spending 50% of their time at the partner organization and 50% at the research institution under the guidance of their supervisor. 

MITACS is an independent internship program but can be undertaken in conjunction with the BRITE program if appropriate.
