The Mitacs Accelerate Fellowship provides long-term funding for a significant part of graduate degree programs:
- Master’s students can complete an 18-month project (minimum $30,000 stipend)
- PhD students can complete a three-year project (minimum $72,000 stipend)
The program allows for longer term research experience with an industry or not-for-profit partner than the traditional Mitacs Accelerate program. Participating students receive training that helps them ensure the success of their projects and further their careers.
Fellowships can form new Accelerate projects or be added to existing ones, and applications are accepted any time.
Note that Mitacs Accelerate programs require matching funding from the industry or not-for-profit partner.
