Imagine a program that gives you 50 cents to the dollar to hire a smart, talented and driven graduate student to grow your business.

With the support of a Government of Alberta grant, the University of Alberta’s Graduate Student Internship Program (GSIP) provides employers up to $8,000 in matching funding to hire graduate students on flexible work terms designed to meet the demands of the workplace. It provides an opportunity for students enrolled in Masters and PhD programs to grow their confidence and hone their professional skills such as communication, creativity and critical thinking. The program gives employers a unique opportunity to participate in and benefit from the development of some of Alberta’s best and brightest talent.

To find out if your position would qualify for this funding, please contact Andrea Spevak, GSIP Advisor, at 780-492-1869 or email: andrea.spevak@ualberta.ca.
