The ACCELERATE Program is an internship program for grad students, and post-docs.
If you, as a researcher, have a connection with an outside industry, government or not-for-profit organization or would like to make a connection with one, this is a great opportunity both for the faculty advisor and for the student to collaborate on a research project with the outside organization.
· Applications are accepted all year.
· The MITACs team will help with the application and making industry contacts if needed.
· Success rate on the applications is very high.
AMOUNT: $15,000 for one four-month term (Graduate student/ Post Doc support)
