Description

The Mitacs Globalink Research Award program is an opportunity for faculty, postdocs, and students to develop and deepen international research collaborations through student research mobility.  Mitacs provides funding for senior undergraduates, graduate students, and 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 mulitple interns. The interns can 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, the calls, deadlines, eligibility, and application requirements will be posted below. Some calls have deadlines and others are open all year.  For a list of Mitacs partners please visit the Mitacs GRA webpage here.

For more information on the Mitacs Globalink Research Award (GRA) program, these calls, and to find the local Mitacs representative, click here.

2. Carleton’s Open Call for travel to/from eligible countries

Carleton has partnered with Mitacs to offer opportunities for senior undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows to conduct research visits at or from institutions in the eligible countries listed below.  This is an open call with no deadline but there are a limited number of awards available.
