Carefully read the application instructions before submitting your documents. Completed applications should be submitted via email to ion [at] mcgill.ca.
Please note: If you are applying to a second degree at McGill and waiting for a response, you must hold a confirmation of acceptance by the application deadline and include it with your application material.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: Applications closed for 2019.
SELECTION: Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted, within two weeks of application deadline. Please do not email to inquire about the status of your application. Shortlisted candidates will be required to provide a full commitment to the internship selection process by CAMFED and waive any other internship opportunity at this time.
A formal acceptance of an ION internship is a final decision, and under no circumstances (unless health or family-related) can a student withdraw from the internship after accepting. The consequence of this would be refusal of candidature for future ION internship opportunities. Please remember, revoking a spot in one of the organizations means also revoking it from another student who might have had the opportunity to take it.
Successful candidates will receive an award from McGill University valued at $4,000 - $6,000.
Successful candidates are required to attend the following sessions:
- Cross-Cultural Workshop
- Interns Responsibilities and Guidelines
- University-Wide Pre-Departure Session
- Internship Workshop: Success in a Professional Environment
- Reception for Awards Recipients
- Internship Debriefing Session (September)
