The Mitacs Globalink Research Award (GRA) program is an opportunity for faculty, postdocs, and students to develop international research collaborations through student research mobility. Mitacs provides funding for senior undergraduate and graduate students, as well as postdoctoral fellows, to conduct short-term (12-24 weeks) research visits at or from institutions in eligible countries (see below) or through Mitacs partners.

Carleton faculty members can build or strengthen international partnerships through the co-supervision of research projects for Carleton interns or visiting researchers. Faculty can submit one application for one project with multiple interns. These interns will gain valuable international experience, build long-term career connections, and enrich the research at their home institution.

There are two ways to apply:

1. Calls for Applications with Mitacs Partners

When Mitacs’s international partners post calls for applications, they will be posted below, along with all relevant information. Some calls have deadlines, while others are open all year.
