CANADIAN ASSOCIATES OF BIOS (CABIOS) INTERNSHIP | APPLICATIONS DUE MARCH 15TH 2016
CABIOS offers full scholarships for students to participate in research internships at BIOS. Since 2012, CABIOS has sponsored 8 interns from Canadian institutions including Dalhousie University, Trent University, Carleton University, the University of Western Ontario and the University of Toronto. CABIOS intern scholarships cover the cost of accommodation, meals and include a small student stipend as well as a contribution to the costs of supplies and other expenses associated with the intern's research project. However, scholarship funds do not cover travel expenses.
Students enrolled in Canadian colleges/universities are eligible to apply for CABIOS funding. Canadian students enrolled in universities outside Canada, but who intend to return to Canada after graduation are also eligible for funding.
INTERNSHIP AND SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION:
Students who meet the eligibility requirements should consult the list of potential internship projects and mentors for 2016. After selecting up to 3 potential projects and mentors, students should complete the internship application form. Students should note that the application form includes a list of documents which must accompany the completed application form; these documents include 2 letters of reference from academics familiar with your work, your CV and a copy of recent transcripts. The application deadline for CABIOS internships is March 15, 2016. Students will be notified of the outcome of their application by March 25, 2016.
