Returning to Canada: reflections from Mitacs Globalink alumni

Since 2009, Mitacs Globalink has welcomed some of the world’s brightest young minds for competitive summer research internships at Canadian universities. To support their return to Canada for graduate studies, Mitacs also established the Mitacs Globalink Graduate Fellowship. These awards provide up to $10,000 per year to help these young innovators realise their research dreams.

Recently, six young fellows shared with us the impact that Mitacs Globalink has had on them, and their decision to return to Canada. Watch the videos below to hear their stories.
