Faculty Mobility Program (GAC)
The Government of Canada has recently launched a new scholarship initiative called the Faculty Mobility Program. This program will allow Canadian professors and researchers to teach or conduct research, for a short period, in Latin America and the Caribbean. This will aim to increase the number of institutional collaboration and student exchange agreements between Canadian, Latin American and Caribbean postsecondary institutions.
The Faculty Mobility Program provides Canadian faculty with short-term opportunities to teach or conduct research in Latin America and the Caribbean, at the college, undergraduate and graduate levels.
The maximum grant value per faculty is CAD 7,000. Recipients may seek additional funding from other sources (private or public).
The duration of the scholarship is for three (3) weeks minimum and eight (8) maximum (participant can stay longer with funds from other sources)
All funds related to the project must be made by March 31, 2019 (the termination date of the project can go beyond March 31, 2019).
Deadline: October 18, 2018
The Canadian postsecondary institution must apply on behalf of the candidate(s) by submitting proposals containing the following elements:
- a detailed description of the project;
- expected results;
- performance indicators; and
- the name of the existing contact(s) abroad.
