Mitacs has partnered with the United Way to support research on themes surrounding social inclusion in five regions across Canada.

This grant aims to identify talented researchers conducting thesis or dissertation research related to social inclusion.  Research may focus on one or more of the following broad themes:

  • – Reduced isolation
  • – Access to services
  • – Stronger neighbourhoods
  • – Diversity
  • – Employment for groups that are more often excluded from the workforce

Funding is offered through the Mitacs Accelerate program, so graduate students and postdocs are eligible, and no additional partner organization is required. Applicants will have submitted a successful Letter of Intent (LOI) outlining their proposed research topic in January.

If you have any questions, contact Mitacs at
