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.
