Two University of Missouri students — juniors Jordan Chiantelli-Mosebach and Tanner Smith — recently secured Fulbright Canada-Mitacs Globalink Research Internships, offered through the Foundation for Educational Exchange between Canada and the United States (Fulbright Canada).

Fulbright students spend 10 to 12 weeks in the summer on an established research project, supervised by a professor. There are also ample opportunities for professional trainings, and scholars are encouraged to participate in cultural, social and recreational experiences.

“I love the Mitacs Globalink application because it forces Mizzou students to look at their research interests in a new light, from a different cultural perspective,” said Erik Potter, program manager for the MU Office of Global and National Fellowships. “Jordan and Tanner are strong scholars, and they both did a great job of thinking about how pursuing their research in Canada could open up new, interesting questions for them to explore.”

This will be the first chance both students have had to study abroad.

“An opportunity like this is absolutely amazing for my growth as a student, individual and professional,” Smith said. “While in the short term, this project will allow me to become immersed in a new culture and gain experience doing research under a new setting. This will also pay huge dividends for me in the future. As someone who wants to get my Ph.D. in communication and become a professor, this will give me not only the tools I need to be prepared for graduate school, but the experience going abroad will potentially open the door for future travel.”

Chiantelli-Mosebach and Smith are both pursuing the Honors Certificate at Mizzou.
