The Summer Student Employment Program (SSEP) offers the opportunity for Supervisors in science and engineering fields to advance their research or other work at no financial cost.
Additionally, SSEP is a rewarding opportunity to mentor a bright young female student interested in a career in science, engineering, mathematics, medicine or technology.
WISE NL applies for funding so the number of positions filled in any given year is determined by the number of placements that are funded.
The program runs for six to eight weeks during the months of June, July and August. The work week is 35 hours that excludes lunch. MUN holidays are observed.

“These are real experiments, they’re not just occupying the students. They’re part of my work. It’s a real experience for them and what they do contributes very positively to my work.”
“Many of my past students have been from smaller communities and have felt intimidated about entering a large post-secondary institution as well as uncertain about what types of careers are available to women. Being part of this program has allowed me to be a role model for these young women, something I feel very proud of.”
