SFU is second among all Canadian universities for Mitacs-funded internships for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.

Mitacs Accelerate funding, available to all disciplines, supports graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to conduct research with companies and not-for-profit organizations.

FASS faculty members and students will join for a roundtable to share their strategies and experiences, and participate in a Q&A.
