If a fellow plans to terminate their award early, they will need to send a written notice to Mitacs, including the reasons for such action and the effective termination date, to elevate@mitacs.ca. Their host academic institution will be required to return any prorated funds for the remainder of the fellowship. Once the academic institution returns these unused funds to Mitacs, we will issue a refund to the fellow’s partner organization for the prorated amount of their contribution. These funds are limited to supporting the direct costs of research. Refer to Mitacs Use of Funds policy for details of eligible expenses for Mitacs programs.

An Early Cancellation of Fellowship form (found in the downloadable Application Package zip file in the How To Apply section) must be submitted to elevate@mitacs.ca in order to officially cancel the fellowship.
