The Research Office and the Faculty of Graduate Studies are hosting this info session to provide more insights and application steps for hosting an international student for a 12-week research internship through Mitacs Globalink Research Internship program. Last year the University of Winnipeg hosted 21 international students. We are anticipating that this internship could be a powerful recruitment tool to attract accomplished international students to the University of Winnipeg Faculty of Graduate Studies programs.
