We are pleased to announce the 5th edition of the McGill Engine's Summer Startup Internship Award Program (SSIAP) which provides McGill undergraduate students with an experiential learning opportunity within our startup ventures over the summer. They have the opportunity to collaborate with both the startup venture and a mentor at the McGill Engine Centre to ensure they have a well-rounded learning experience.

This year, the SSIAP is supporting 9 summer startup internship awards. One is made available through the Jim Nicell Startup Internship Award supported by endowed gifts from several members of the Faculty of Engineering Advancement Board and friends of the Faculty in honour of the past dean, Professor Jim Nicell. The remaining internship awards are funded through the support of other generous donors, namely, John D. Thompson and Stephen Hamelin.

The SSIAP stipend is valued at up to $6,675 per award.
