The Prairie Indigenous Knowledge Exchange Network (PIKE-Net) is seeking mentors to support Indigenous undergraduate students for our Summer Research Internships program. Students selected for this 13-week program gain hands on health research experience under the supervision of a research mentor to develop their skills through working on research projects in health and wellness. The intention of the internship is to expose the student to a range of research activities, topics and application. This can include (but is not limited to) learning how to gather information and literature, conducting interviews or preparing questionnaires, attending research team meetings and learning how research can be applied in community, government and policy making setting. A stipend will be given to students on a bi-weekly basis.
Placement of interns with research projects is based on the applicant's experience, education and interests, as well as the availability of suitable projects and mentors. Please note that any project cost (e.g. travel, supplies, and equipment) must be provided by the project/organization hosting the student. Project mentors are responsible for providing student interns with space and access to any supplies or equipment that are necessary to complete the internship project. While there is no guarantee that there will be a student that can be matched to the mentor project, mentors can let us know if they would like to offer the position for future PIKE-Net scholars.

Deadline for mentor registration is February 28th, 2020.
