Wallace Family Internship

Through the generous support of the Wallace Family Entrepreneurship Fund, students who have an enterprise idea and who are interested in starting a new venture, developing a new prototype, or applying innovative approaches to a particular product or service are encouraged to apply for a summer internship.

Interns receive coaching and assistance from StFX staff and faculty mentors and engage in learning activities that help them explore and develop an enterprise venture.

StFX is pleased to provide students with a self-directed learning experience that helps strengthen entrepreneurial skills through the exploration and development of their own innovative enterprise endeavor. The StFX Innovation and Enterprise Centre’s DiscoverBox administers the internships, and provides services and oversight to the students selected.

There are four possible internships available, worth up to $6000 each or $10,000 for a team, for students enrolled in full-time study at StFX. The internships support full-time employment for StFX students for a 12 week period during the summer (April-July).
