An Opportunity for College & University Students and Recent Graduates

Ontario’s TalentEdge Internship Program (TIP) provides support for college and university students (undergraduate, graduate and PhD) and recent graduates (up to three years) to work on collaborative industry-driven projects across all disciplines and areas of specialization. Postdoctoral Fellows (PDFs) must apply through the TalentEdge Fellowship Program. 

TalentEdge internships are intended to provide interns with an experiential learning opportunity and hands-on industry experience. Interns are required to spend a portion of their time on-site or in the field with an industry partner. The amount of time spent with the partner should be mutually determined and will depend on the nature and needs of the project.

Each four-month internship unit is valued at $20,000 as follows:

  • $10,000 from Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE)
  • $5,000 industry partner cash contribution
  • $5,000 industry partner in-kind contribution

Internship units are scalable and may be held consecutively.
