About the program

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

  • A two-year research project with a partner organization in need of high-level expertise
  • A professional development curriculum that prepares Elevate fellows for success as leaders in research and industry

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:

  • A $55,000 minimum annual stipend/salary
  • An exclusive professional development curriculum valued at $4,000 per year
  • Proposal assistance, including application feedback, from Mitacs representatives
  • Certificate of completion after receipt of their exit survey and final report submission
