An international scholarship program is available to international students for an internship in the laboratories of Université Laval researchers participating in research projects funded by Sentinel North's research program. Through this program, Sentinel North seeks to attract new talent, foster the development of young international scientists able to tackle and help resolve complex northern issues, and encourage the sharing of knowledge and experience across borders.
More specifically, the program aims to encourage international students to:
- Contribute their expertise to research projects funded by Sentinel North
