Mitacs and IBET expand program for Indigenous and Black PhD students

Mitacs and the Indigenous and Black Engineering and Technology PhD Project (IBET) are expanding their partnership with a pilot initiative that will enable 10 PhD students currently participating in the IBET program to conduct research at an IBET partner institution. Called the IBET Connect Award, the program is designed to encourage Indigenous and Black researchers to build and strengthen connections across Canada.

The IBET Connect Award will be offered to IBET fellows. Those selected will receive a $9,000 stipend to travel to and conduct an 8- to 16-week project at an IBET partner academic institution. Projects can be research or innovation-based and require active participation of the home and host academic supervisors.
