Opportunity Details

The goal of the Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships Program 2024–2025 is to keep Canada’s brightest minds in the country. The grant is intended for exceptional candidates who demonstrate academic and research excellence. Both foreign and domestic scholars are eligible to apply for the Banting Fellowship in Canada in 2024. The Banting postgraduate Fellowship program aims to cultivate leadership skills in the most exceptional and brightest postgraduate minds. Additionally, the fellowship hopes to develop future generations of research leaders.

A total of 70 annual fellowships are available through the Vanier Banting Fellowship program, and they are split equally among three Canadian institutes: the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), and the Canadian Institute of Health Research (CIHR). The selection of candidates is under the purview of these three governmental institutions. Nonetheless, day-to-day management of the program falls within the purview of the Vanier Banting Secretariate.

The Banting International Fellowships program offers $70,000 annually for two years to both domestic and foreign students. The host institutions submit direct proposals for the recipients of this honor. Because it places so much emphasis on coordination and collaboration between the host institutions and postdoctoral academics, the Banting fellowship is extremely selective. The host institution processes the applicant’s application because the program ensures that the scholar’s research is in line with its priorities. The next paragraphs go into detail about the entire application procedure.

Applications that demonstrate a scholar’s dedication to innovation and a healthy research ecosystem are given great consideration by the Banting scholarships in Canada. As a result, the program offers equal opportunity to both domestic and foreign students and operates on the principles of fairness, diversity, and inclusion. The scholar needs to be aware of the following technical requirements in order to be chosen for this fellowship.
