A Mitacs Elevate Industrial PDF award consists of a $55,000 stipend and $10,000 in research funds to support the research project. Of this, at least $30,000 will come from an industrial partner who collaborating with the PDF. Participants are expected to work collaboratively on a research project of mutual interest with their industrial partner and spend at least 25% of their time over the year working at the company’s facilities. All participants in the Mitacs Elevate program will participate in a specially designed training program focused on enhancing professional development and fostering industrial engagement.
This program is designed as a two-year fellowship program, however renewal for a second year of funding is not guaranteed and is contingent on the degree to which PDFs participate in the program activities over the year, the outcomes of their efforts at engaging industry, the progress that is made on their research projects, and the continued government funding support for this program.

In the past year I have learned much about the industry side of biotechnology and your program has expanded many of the professional skills that I was hoping to obtain. Most importantly, the Elevate program has opened up opportunities that would not have been possible otherwise. Thus, I really enjoyed the program and I hope to learn more and develop further within the next year.
