McGill University Arts Research Internship Awards 2018

The purpose of the Arts Research Internship Awards (ARIA) is to support undergraduate students who undertake research during the summer under the direct supervision of a faculty member.

The Faculty of Arts will provide Undergraduate Research Internship Awards, each with a value $2000, for summer 2017.

These awards are matched by individual faculty members or their departments to provide a total award of $4000 to the student.

How it works

Professors

  • Professors seek out students to assist with their research by soliciting for applications in class or, through their departments.
  • Professors and their selected students apply jointly for the ARIA, using the ARIA application form (see bottom the page). These applications are to be submitted to the Arts Internship Office (AIO) for processing and are redistributed to the departments for selection.
  • The internship term lasts eleven weeks over the summer. Students will be expected to dedicate 30 hours per week to the internship. It is important to set clear expectations about the student’s weekly schedule.
