The MITACS program enables UNIL Master students to complete a research stay of 3 to 6 months at the University of Montreal (UofM). All fields of research are eligible. A stay in an institution affiliated to the University of Montreal (e.g. HEC Montreal, Polytechnic School of Montreal) is not possible.
For such a research stay, a scholarship of 6000 Canadian dollars is available, regardless of the length of the stay. Half of this sum is paid by MITACS, a Canadian not-for-profit organization, which has signed an agreement with the University of Montreal, and the other half by UNIL.
An application can be sent to us at any time before the indicated deadline. However, there are two important points to keep in mind:
Please take note of the important information below before downloading the application form :
To download the application form, please go on the website of the University of Montreal. Click on "1. Apply", scroll to "Submitting applications" and click on "Application kit". The form 1 (research proposal) must be completed (without deleting the comments and advice) and sent electronically to Mr. Matthias Buess. You should not send your research proposal directly to MITACS nor to UofM. The form 2 (co-funding) is not needed for your application.
Our office will send your research proposal to MITACS, which will carry out a pre-assessment. If the proposal complies, MITACS will send you a link to the application portal, and you will be guided through the rest of the procedure. Both supervisors will also need to open an account to approve the project.
