Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship 2020-2021
The 2020-2021 Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship program was launched on June 15, 2020. This program provides funding to the very best postdoctoral applicants, both nationally and internationally, who will positively contribute to the country's economic, social and research based growth. The Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships Program is distinguished from existing postdoctoral fellowships programs by its emphasis on the synergy between an applicant’s individual merit and potential to launch a successful research-intensive career and the host institution’s commitment to the research program and environment with which the applicant is to be affiliated (including synergy with the host institution’s strategic priorities).
The awards are a maximum amount of $70,000 per year (taxable) for up to 2 years, and 70 fellowships are awarded nationally each year.
