The PICS Internships program provides support for the hiring of university students at the workplaces pursuing climate change mitigation and adaptation research, planning or implementation. Workplaces can be governments, NGOs, industry and communities in BC. Eligible students must be enrolled in a full-time undergraduate or graduate program at one of the four PICS partner institutions: UVIC, UBC, SFU or UNBC. Students must either be returning to complete their degree programs following the internship, or have completed their programs the semester prior to the start of the internship. PICS will provide $12,000 to hire a student intern for a minimum of 13 weeks. Applications are accepted annually in January.
