Mitacs Elevate is a postdoctoral fellowship with an exclusive professional development curriculum component. Fellows address complex challenges through:

  • An exclusive professional development curriculum for postdoctoral fellows in any discipline
  • A two-year research project with a partner organization in need of high-level expertise
  • A Partner Organization Business Case, developed to outline project objectives, risks, and stakeholder success criteria, and ensure project value

Fellows progress through the program in a cohort, giving them cross-disciplinary networking and peer-learning opportunities they might not have otherwise in their careers.

Over the two-year fellowship, fellows divide their time between their partner organization’s project and academic institution-based research with their academic supervisor.

Elevate fellows receive:

  • – $55,000 minimum annual stipend/salary (for fellowships awarded after April 1, 2018)
  •  – An exclusive professional development curriculum valued at $7,500 per year
  •  – Proposal assistance, including application feedback, from Mitacs representatives
  •  – Certificate of completion after receipt of their exit survey and final report submission
