Research internship

Thanks to the University of Bordeaux’s partnership with Mitacs, you can now benefit from funding to travel to Canada for a research internship!

About Mitacs

Mitacs is a Canadian not-for-profit organization which supports partnerships between universities and the industrial sector, mainly through scholarship programs. These scholarships are awarded to students, PhD students and postdoctoral researchers, from the University of Bordeaux or a local partner institution, who want to travel to or from Canada for a research residency either in research laboratories or a private company.
