Global Affairs Canada Faculty Mobility for Partnership Building Program

The Faculty Mobility for Partnership Building Program (FMPB) provides full-time professors at Canadian post-secondary institutions with short-term opportunities to conduct research and/or teaching projects in Latin America and the Caribbean, at the college, undergraduate and graduate levels. The program aims to increase the number of institutional collaborations and student exchange agreements between Canadian and non-Canadian institutions eligible under the Emerging Leaders in the Americas Program (ELAP). These agreements are created between colleges, technical or vocational institutions and universities in Canada, Latin America and the Caribbean. The Program will award grants to faculty members to teach or conduct a research, teaching, or research & teaching project for a short term in ELAP-eligible countries (Caribbean, Central and South America, and Mexico).

Amount: The maximum grant value per project is CAD $7,000.
