Any non-federal government organization (private company, university or college, non-profit organization and provincial or municipal government) can become a partner of Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) when it hires an eligible intern to work on research and development projects that are within the mandate of NRCan. Partners can receive a contribution payment for a portion of the intern's salary. The intern is an employee of the partner.
The maximum contribution per internship from the Science and Technology Internship Program fund is $13,200 over a maximum of 52 weeks.
