Australia and New Zealand
Apply to the MIT-ANZ Program
Connecting MIT undergrad and grad students to industry and research in Australia and New Zealand. MISTI-ANZ has been a pilot program until recent expansion with 18 students going to Australia (14) and New Zealand (4) in 2018. Many of these students are summer research interns at universities in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Townsville, Canberra, Auckland and Christchurch funded through the MISTI-International Research Opportunities Program (IROP) partnership. Freshmen through Juniors are eligible to apply for MISTI-IROP funding. The deadline for MISTI-IROP applications is late February with funding decisions confirmed by mid March. Students need to have a university research internship confirmed by an ANZ host professor at the time of application. There are also a few possibilities for industry internships. Go to the MISTI-ANZ newsletter for an overview. (An updated 2018-19 newsletter will be posted to this site in the coming weeks)
There is very high student demand for Australia and New Zealand internships with not that many openings. Because of limited ANZ opportunities, highly encourage students to explore other MISTI country opportunities as well.
