Is your business gearing up for an R&D project? Then you will be interested in learning about two funding programs offered by Mitacs, a national nonprofit organization that delivers research and training programs.

  • The Mitacs Elevate Program can help your business find and support high-quality PhDs who can dedicate themselves to a long-term R&D project.
  • Mitacs Elevate is a two-year training program for postdoctoral fellows, in which participants lead and undertake an industrially-relevant research project.
  • Mitacs Elevate is an attractive option for organizations seeking a recognized program to help them develop their R&D management capacity in-house with a minimal impact on their budgets.
  • The applicant company provides $30k and Mitacs provides $20k, for a total research stipend/salary of at least $50k per year.
  • Eligible applicants include for-profit and crown corporations receiving no more than 50% of their revenues from government sources, as well as nonprofits.
  • Applicant organizations must be Canadian or a Canadian location of a foreign-owned organization.
  • They should be end-users of the research and must have an office or site in the same province as the fellow’s university, where the fellow undertakes at least 50% of the fellowship.
  • The deadline to apply to Mitacs Elevate is March 23 at 5 p.m. PDT.

  • The Mitacs Accelerate Program helps match your business with graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to act as interns and apply their specialized expertise to your business-related research challenges.
  • This program is open to Canadian businesses from all industry sectors.
  • Each internship is eligible for up to $7,500 in funding from Mitacs, with the company providing matching funds towards the intern’s stipend.
  • Internships tend last four months, but longer projects are also possible.
  • Interns spend approximately half of the time on-site with your business; the remainder is spent at the university advancing the research under the guidance of a faculty supervisor.
  • Applications for this program are accepted year-round.
