Description

Mitacs has partnered with Campus France to support student mobility between Canadian universities and French universities. The Mitacs Globalink Research Award – Campus France is an exciting competitive initiative that provides the opportunity for faculty members and M2 and PhD students at French universities to build an international research network and undertake research abroad at Canadian universities. This award provides an opportunity to strengthen existing international research collaborations and connect with colleagues around the world through the mobility of graduate students.  Student recipients will develop research skills, cultural fluency, and a professional network, becoming part of Canada’s generation of global innovators.
