Preparing for the Internship
University-Wide Pre-Departure Information Session
Fellows are required to attend one of the Pre-Departure Information Sessions offered by the Office of the Deputy Provost. At this session, Fellows will hear from McGill and Canadian government officials regarding consular services, regional safety, and health and travel tips. Following the main session, there will be regional break-out sessions, yet as Fellows will be traveling to the United States, they are not required to attend this part of the Pre-Departure session.
McGill Travel Registry
Fellows are required to register on the McGill travel registry. The registry collects information about itineraries, host organization contact information, emergency contact information, travel documentation, insurance, vaccinations, etc.
McGill monitors all University-related travel on the registry. Fellows must register their travel outside of Montreal on the McGill travel registry as well as with DFATD on the Registry of Canadians Abroad (ROCA).
During the Internship
Within a week of beginning the internship, Fellows are required to notify the Internship Offices Network with an email to ion [at] mcgill [dot] ca containing:
- Office phone number (required)
- Personal cellphone number
- Supervisor's cellphone number (required, to be used in case of an emergency)
- Apartment/hostel number (optional)
One month into the internship, Fellows are required to send a report to the Internship Offices Network to update us on your work. Please see the guidelines in the Handbook for All Faculty of Arts Interns, available here.
Finalizing the Internship
Following the completion of their internships, Fellows are required to send a final report to the Internship Offices Network by October 31, 2014. The guidelines for writing the report may be found in the Handbook for Interns. The report should be emailed to the Internship Offices Network at ion [at] mcgill [dot] ca.
To the extent possible, Fellows are asked to participate in promotional events about their experience as Pascale International Fellows, including an annual university-wide Internship Information Session and an information session on the Pascale International Fellowship and internships at the Clinton Foundation. Fellows will also be invited to write a short article about their experience for the ION website.
