Call for Applications: FROGBEAR Mitacs Globalink Research Awards

[We are no longer accepting applications.]


The FROGBEAR project has an agreement with Mitacs to fund a limited number of 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 at partner institutions 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.

Please email a title and a brief outline of the proposal, as well as a CV. If the project is accepted by FROGBEAR, you will receive an application package. Applications are accepted on an on-going basis; however, projects must be completed by April 2024. Results are announced within 12 weeks after being submitted to Mitacs.
