Call for Applications: FROGBEAR Mitacs Globalink Research Awards

The FROGBEAR project has an agreement with Mitacs to fund several interns under their Globalink Research Award program, to support internships between partners in Canada, and institutions in East Asia. Any FROGBEAR Co-Investigators, and any students and post-doctoral fellows based in Asia or Canada are eligible to submit proposals.

Proposals may be submitted to FROGBEAR either by a Co-Investigator or by the student / post-doctoral fellow. FROGBEAR can assist in identifying a partner university in Asia where needed. Either the host institution or the home institution must be a FROGBEAR partner university in Canada. For proposals received from outside of Canada, FROGBEAR will determine the most suitable Canadian partner to host the intern.

FROGBEAR partners in Canada:

  • McGill University
  • McMaster University
  •  Mount Allison University
  •  University of British Columbia
  • University of Calgary
  •  University of Manitoba
  •  University of Saskatchewan
  •  University of Toronto

Under the joint supervision of a home and host professor, successful senior undergraduate students, graduate students, as well as postdoctoral fellows will receive a $6,000 research award to conduct a 12- to 24-week research project in the other country.
