Canadian funder looks for scientists keen to break down barriers for its Azrieli Global Scholarships
- The application form is brief and pre-structured so it might still be possible to apply in this round.
- For those applying now, secure your letters of recommendation first.
- Scholars can stay in their home country for the fellowship but will need to travel to Canada for meetings.
- Scholars are selected after a two-day workshop event so do not apply if that makes you uncomfortable.
- The scheme is focused on improving scholars’ soft skills so they can become more rounded researchers.
