Mitacs Awards


Mitacs-Accelerate is Canada’s premiere research internship program. It connects companies with over 50 research-based universities through graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, who apply their specialized expertise to business research challenges. Interns transfer their skills from theory to real-world application, while the companies gain a competitive advantage by accessing high-quality research expertise

Mitacs Elevate supports postdoctoral fellows at Canadian universities to collaborate on cutting-edge research projects in order to build capacity for the next generation of R&D management leaders. This two-year program valued at $115,000 (plus $15,000 non-cash value in training) develops fellows’ professional and R&D management skills as they lead a long-term research project with their private-sector partner.
