Eligibility: Canadian citizens and landed immigrants pursuing full-time doctoral studies in Canada, and exceptionally to Canadians pursuing doctoral studies at foreign institutions. Foreign nationals pursuing doctoral studies at Canadian institutions will also be supported, with a preference for candidates from the developing world.
