The Desjardins Estrie-Preneur Program aims to allow students to live a unique 8-week experience working on real issues and challenges faced by businesses and organizations in the Eastern Townships.

Each Spring, 8 students are paired in teams of 2 and each team are assigned a specific mandate with one of the four organizations that has been chosen for the Internship. Under the supervision of a seasoned consultant, these students will work full time on that specific mandate.

The Desjardins Estrie-Preneur Internship Program is opened to every full-time student (12 credits during the Winter semester) from all academic programs. The recruitment process is usually launched in January of each year, and candidates are selected by March at the latest. Each of the selected students will receive a total bursary of $5000, payable during the project.

We are currently recruiting students and businesses / organizations for the 8th edition of the Desjardins Estrie-Preneur Internship Program. Deadline to apply for the Spring 2024 Desjardins Estrie-Preneur Internship Program is March 1, 2024, at noon.
