Scholarship Description:

The CREATE program aims to support highly qualified students and postdoctoral fellows from Canada and abroad through innovative training programs that promote collaboration and address significant scientific challenges aligned with Canada’s research priorities. The program also aims to prepare trainees for productive careers in industry, government, non-governmental organizations, or academia by fostering the acquisition of professional skills that complement their technical skills.

The program encourages interdisciplinary research within the natural sciences and engineering or at the interface between the NSE and health or social sciences and humanities. It also encourages student mobility and increased collaboration between industry and academia. For the industrial stream, the program aims to support improved job readiness by exposing participants to the specific challenges of the industry and training them with the skills identified by the industry.

Successful applicants will consist of a group of accomplished researchers who will work collaboratively to offer a defined research training program to a group of trainees. The training program should provide an enriched training and mentoring experience for graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows may also be supported. The program recognizes initiatives that create a rich research training and mentoring environment, train and mentor highly qualified personnel, raise the standard for best practices in research training, and encourage student mobility. Industry-supported training programs will also be recognized for their capacity to support improved job readiness within the industrial sector.

Applicants are encouraged to take advantage of existing training programs and opportunities to increase the number of trainees and to exercise appropriate levels of due diligence when managing their research and establishing partnerships with national, international, and multinational organizations.
