In order to participate in any Mitacs program, it is preferred that interns have full-time student or postdoc status at their academic institution. However, individuals with part-time status as postdoctoral fellows are also eligible for Elevate, provided that the following conditions hold:
• They have postdoctoral fellow status at the academic institution for the duration of the fellowship
• They are covered under the institution’s insurance, the same as full-time postdocs
• The institution is able to pay the fellow a salary or stipend from the Mitacs grant
• The fellow is able to commit to the project for the appropriate two-year duration
