In 2016, the U of A launched a paid internship program (GSIP) to provide graduate students with work outside of academia. We have seen the program strengthen students’ skills and confidence, and act as a bridge to employment. We presented at Cannexus 2017 on first year insights. This is an update as we enter the final year of the pilot.

Learning Outcomes: 
  • Learn GSIP's strategies to overcoming challenges in piloting this program
