Top tips:

  • 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.

The Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (Cifar) is a charity that supports interdisciplinary research around (but not limited to) artificial intelligence, consciousness and learning.
