Call for Proposals

Funding to Support Mitacs Accelerate Research Internships

The Mitacs Accelerate program provides $15,000 for four-month student research internships across all academic disciplines. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Mitacs is increasing its funding from 50% to 75% of Accelerate research internship costs (i.e. partner organization contribution of $3,750) for proposals submitted by July 1, 2020.

To leverage this increased Mitacs funding and support existing or new research and knowledge user partners, CMN will contribute $7,500 to expand the scope or scale of selected Accelerate projects that respond to one or more of the goals and/or research priorities in the Network’s Strategic Plan. As a result, projects would receive $22,500 in total support from Mitacs, CMN, and a partner organization.

CMN will accept and select proposals for funding at any time prior to the July 1, 2020 deadline for submission to Mitacs. However, only proposals accepted by Mitacs will be eligible for funding.
