The FAES undergraduate internship office continues to work with students and employers to facilitate Summer 2020 internships for FAES 200 and FAES 300. Due to the current public health emergency, we are exploring and encouraging ways in which students can gain valuable experience while remaining compliant with public health directives, government regulations, and travel bans.
Currently, all internship work for FAES 200 and FAES 300 must be performed remotely unless a special exemption has been granted through the FAES Internship Office. If an exemption is granted, employers must nevertheless ensure a secure workplace and follow all local and regional government directives.
If you are student, you may now enroll in FAES 200 or 300. Please contact the FAES Internships Officer to register.
Student funding continues to be available. The deadline for applying for internship funding has been moved from April 1st until April 8th. We understand that many students have not heard back from their potential employers as the public health emergency has made the employment situation uncertain. If you find yourself in this situation, please contact the FAES Internships Officer.
We recognize that this is an uncertain time and no one knows how the situation will change during the next few months. We recognize that this is a rapidly changing situation with different impacts in different geographic areas, and we are doing our best to be flexible and adaptable.
For additional information, or to speak with the internship officer about specific situations, please Kendra.Gray [at] mcgill.ca (subject: Question%20about%20(enter%20subject)) (contact the Internships Officer).
