The Canadian Association of Science Centres (CASC) has funding available to support science and/or technology interns at your organization. The Science and Technology Internship Program provides an opportunity to recent graduates in science or engineering to gain relevant and meaningful work experiences within their field of studies.
Any non-profit, for-profit, or non-federal government organization can become a CASC partner upon hiring an eligible intern to work on research and development projects that fall within the mandate of Natural Resources Canada (NRCan). Partners then receive a contribution payment for a portion of the intern's salary.
Once approved, internships start at any time between August 2010 and March 2011, based on funding availability. The maximum contribution per internship from the CASC’s Science Interns Outreach Project fund will be $1,100 per month between August 2010 and March 31st, 2011.
