Tri-Council Announces Special Response Fund for Ukraine Trainees

Tri-Council Announces Special Response Fund for Ukraine Trainees

The Government of Canada has announced special funding, in the form of supplements to existing research grants, that will provide relief and assistance to research trainees from Ukraine.

Active and eligible Tri-Council grant-holders can apply for this special supplement by completing and submitting a short application form (downloaded from websites below). The fund will allow up to $20,000 for the master’s level, $25,000 for the doctoral level and up to $45,000 for the postdoctoral level and will be in the form of supplements for salaries and stipends that may extend for up to one year. Applications will be accepted using a continuous intake up to December 22, 2022. Specifically, this temporary funding will help trainees currently in Canada who were expected to return to Ukraine in 2022 but cannot due to the current crisis, as well as trainees currently in Ukraine who wish to continue their planned studies and research in Canada.
