The New Brunswick Institute for Research, Data and Training at UNB has joined forces with the Atlantic Institute for Policy Research and FutureReadyNB to host the very first Pathways to Professions.
Pathways to Professions is a 13-week (May 18 - Aug. 14, 2020) paid summer program for undergraduate students at UNB interested in research, communications, and more.
Successful applicants will work on research projects for not-for-profit and municipal employers while being paid wages supported by FutureReadyNB. Pathways to Professions is a wonderful opportunity for students to boost their employment prospects through workplace experience, hands-on learning, weekly skills development workshops, mentorship from established NB researchers, and presentations that showcase their communication skills.
WHO CAN APPLY?
Any undergraduate UNB student can apply! We welcome applicants from all disciplines – Maths, Sciences, Arts, Business, and more.
WHAT KIND OF WORK WILL STUDENTS DO AT PATHWAYS TO PROFESSIONS?
Teams of students will undertake a research project on a topic relevant to NB. They will interview community partners, analyze open data, create visualizations and communications tools, report the outcomes, and/or oversee project development.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO PARTICIPATE?
Nothing. Not only is Pathways to Professions FREE, but students will be paid for their work! Financial reimbursement is based on FutureReadyNB student wages, totaling $6,370 to be paid on a biweekly basis for the duration of the program.
