Call for applications: Mitacs GRA Thematic Call

How to Apply: 

Mitacs has opened its call for applications under its Globalink Research Award Thematic Call (GRATC).   Ontario applicants may submit applications under this specific program, however no awards will be finalized until the funding situation with Ontario has been resolved.  Given that decisions on applications are expected in February-March 2023, it can be anticipated that any additional delays (if any) for Ontario applications will be minor, given the start of the new fiscal year. 

The award to the student or post-doctoral fellow is CAD 6,000 for a 12-24 week project (inbound or outbound); up to five students/PDF may be included on an application.  Applicants who are approved have one year from the date of approval to start the project.

GRA Thematic calls are competitive calls with specific partners, and do not require any any co-pay from Lakehead or count against our annual allocation.

Deadline to apply: November 25, 2022

Themes this year include an Open Theme: 

1) Advanced computing (AI and Quantum technologies)

4) Open theme: Social and scientific innovation

Partners:  The coverage of institutions varies greatly by partner. In addition to the regular Mitacs eligibility criteria, each partner may have specific (more restrictive) eligibility criteria - it is crucial to review the partner details.
