About the program

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

About the program

Mitacs Elevate helps partner organizations build their business with support from top-ranked, highly trained research talent. Participating fellows work closely with partner organizations to understand their business needs and apply research principles to address these needs.

Participating partner organizations build crucial relationships, oversee development, and access academic institution resources that may otherwise be unavailable. Partner organizations also inform the creation of a Partner Organization Business Case (developed by the fellow), which outlines the project objectives, benefits, risks, and stakeholder success criteria.

Elevate partner organizations can also:

  • Assess potential research managers with minimal impact on existing budgets
  • Develop strategic networks with researchers, professors, and academic institutions 
  • Leverage their research budget 

Partner organizations provide $30,000, and Mitacs provides $30,000, for a total research grant of $60,000 per year.

  • This includes support for fellows and up to $5,000 in research costs for equipment, additional research personnel, conference travel and publishing costs.
