Matching process and evaluation criteria
Professor project proposals are submitted to Mitacs, reviewed, and upon acceptance, entered into an online database.
Applications from students are submitted to Mitacs. Students must select a minimum of three and a maximum of seven research projects from the online database.
The Mitacs Research team scores each application based on criteria including, but not limited to, CGPA, university, and research experience, and ranks students based on their score.
A list of possible matches is generated by combining the list of projects submitted with the list of eligible students.
Faculty and eligible students are invited to contact one another to conduct interviews and review one another for a possible match.
Mitacs collects the feedback and each match is weighted based on both the student’s and professor’s rankings.

Flight and student visa reimbursement
Accommodation and daily stipend
