RBC and St. FX University have teamed up to establish an Undergraduate Research Internship Program. The financial institution has donated $300,00 towards the project.
Applications for the program start in January. The research projects are student-driven, and supervised by a St. FX faculty member, resident visiting fellows or associates of the Brian Mulroney Institute of Government.
Priority for research projects will be given to students focusing on areas of youth unemployment, women’s studies and leadership, economics, trade and finance, Indigenous Affairs and Governance, entrepreneurship as well as others.
It’s expected up to 48 students will benefit from the program over a six year period.
