Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships

The Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships program provides financial support to outstanding postdoctoral candidates, both from within the country and internationally, who have the potential to make significant contributions to the nation’s economic, social, and research progress.

The fellowship award amounts to $70,000 annually for a duration of two years, with funding equally distributed from the CIHR, NSERC, and SSHRC agencies. It’s important to note that this grant does not cover research expenses.
