Internship – Forensic Anthropology, FL

Dr. Tanya Peckmann of St. Mary’s University, NS, will be teaching a summer session course May 3-17, 2014, called “Internship in Forensic Anthropology” in Miami, Florida. This will be the fourth year that this amazing course has been offered.

The application date is quite soon (Jan 27, 2014). Only 16 students are chosen for the course and Dr. Peckmann wants to have the class list finalized by the first week of February – so students will have enough time to work extra shifts and find the funds to pay for this course. The total cost for the course including flights, hotel, and food is about $3500 for the 2-week course.

See Internship poster 2014.

Parliamentary Internship Programme

The Parliamentary Internship Programme was established in 1969 through a Motion, passed in the House of Commons with all-party support, as a non-partisan program that would provide:

  • An outstanding work-study experience for Canadian university graduates in all disciplines
  • Highly qualified assistants to be shared equally by Members of Parliament on both sides of the House of Commons
  • Build public knowledge of Parliament by conducting and disseminating research on Parliament and Canadian politics

September 2014 to June 2015, Stipend $22,000.
Apply online: www.pip-psp.org.  See attached PIP Poster (2014-15).
Deadline: January 31, 2014.
