Summer Internship Program 

More than a summer job – a learning experience to help you grow professionally and personally. Intended for students who are returning to Mount Allison in the Fall.

There are two types of internships:


Internships in organizations

We are very excited to announce that we currently place students with the following partner organizations:


Create your own internship
These internships were designed through the generosity of our partners to support our students to feel creative and empowered throughout their learning.

Create your own internship in New Brunswick
Future Ready NB funding is designed to support experiential education for all students in NB. Wage subsidies, project funding and support for travel and relocation available.

 * NOTE for internships supported by Future Ready NB: With this generous funding we have been given, we aim to provide at least one internship opportunity (academic-year OR summer) per student in order to give everyone the chance to have a meaningful, paid learning opportunity. As such, there is a limit to how much funding each student can access. If you have already completed a summer internship, and are interested in an academic-year internship, please contact us to discuss this before applying.
