Carefully read application instructions before submitting your documents. 

Please note: If you are applying to a second degree at McGill and waiting for a response, you must hold a confirmation of acceptance by the application deadline and include it with your application material.


February 15, 2021, 12PM (noon) Eastern Time - Late applications will not be accepted.


Please do not email to inquire about the status of your application. Shortlisted candidates will be required to provide a full commitment to the internship selection process by Synergos and waive any other internship opportunity at this time.

A formal acceptance of an ION internship is a final decision, and under no circumstances (unless health or family-related) can a student withdraw from the internship after accepting. The consequence of this would be refusal of candidature for future ION internship opportunities. Please remember, revoking a spot in one of the organizations means also revoking it from another student who might have had the opportunity to take it.
