A $10K or $15K award enables the brightest students – from college students to undergrads to grads and postdocs – to undertake a collaborative internship. Whether it’s an operations issue or wanting to protect your intellectual property, students apply their technical expertise to your business challenges to support your innovation activities. The award is open to students across all disciplines, from law to STEM to social sciences and humanities.

  • $10K for a four-month project: your contribution is only $5K 
  • $15K for a four-month project: you pay only $7.5K. Of the $15K, the participants can use up to $5K toward specified project costs or to top-up the student stipend
  • Apply any time for multiple projects
  • Open to all businesses and eligible not-for-profit organizations

No matter your challenge, students can help solve them!

SO, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

"From an immigrant’s perspective who is very new in this market, there is nothing more helpful than getting a locally trained graduate or student to provide support in business strategy. As a new entrepreneur myself, I lack operational knowledge, specifically in expanding and scaling profitability. I may be able to start an innovative venture on my own, but tapping into Mitacs’s BSI program is a gateway to bigger possibilities and opportunities."
