Mitacs Globalink Students Visit Queen's

August 2014

Last Thursday (7th August), 30 international undergraduate Globalink students from the Universities of Windsor, Waterloo, Guelph, McMaster, UofT, Ryerson, York, McGill, Carleton and Concordia visited Queen's to see what the School of Graduate Studies, Queen's and the city of Kingston has to offer.  This is part of an initiative to increase international students  and to highlight to our programs in this instance funding options to assist international students.

Mitacs Globalink is a  two-way mobility initiative between Canada and Mitacs partner countries Brazil, China, India, Mexico, Turkey and Vietnam.  

The undergraduate research internship is very competitive and pairs top-ranked international students and faculty at Canadian universities for a 12-week research project of mutual interest in the period of May to September. Faculty members benefit from students’ international perspectives and experience, and can evaluate potential graduate students while demonstrating the breadth of Canadian research opportunities.

The Globalink Graduate Fellowship provides financial support to former Globalink Research Interns to return to Canada for graduate studies. 

The students had an opportunity to speak with faculty and graduate students, take a campus tour, visit program facilities/labs and go downtown to see Kingston.
