Summer experiential learning at UNB

Looking for a student to help support your organization during the summer?

We have students in all faculties and disciplines who can bring their talent and skills to your organization. A variety of federal and provincial programs offer wage subsidies to support paid opportunities for student placements!

Catalyst

Catalyst supports New Brunswick communities as they adapt to and recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. Catalyst matches local businesses with some of UNB’s brightest and most talented students for assistance in immediate COVID-19 recovery and long-term strategy development.

Summer Work-Integrated Learning Program

The Summer Work-Integrated Learning Program provides wage subsidy funding to help qualifying organizations hire UNB students for 12-16 week full-time summer placements.

The program helps underrepresented students (students with financial need, international students, Indigenous students, students with disabilities, first-generation learners, LGBTQIA2S+ students, and mature students) find summer employment to help offset the costs of university education and to help employers and students become FutureReady!

SWILP is a partnership between UNB’s Office of Experiential Education, UNB Financial Aid, and UNB’s Career Development & Employment Centre.
