Who is Eligible to do a Micro-ExP?

This program is open to all students, but our priority is 1st and 2nd undergraduate students.

What are the Micro-ExP options?

  1. Micro-Project: A Micro-Project involves 12 hours of work, and there are two project types namely, individual, or team based. All micro-projects are unpaid - learn more.

  2. Micro-Placement: A Micro-Placement involves 15 hours of work, and gives students on-site access to a specific organization allowing them to observe, ask questions, and network.

What is the time commitment required of Micro-ExP participants?

On top of your Project/ Placement, you must attend the following sessions:

  • ExP Kick-Off Session
  • Wrap Up & Reflect

*If you have a conflict with one of these live sessions, it may be possible to watch a recording.
