UK-Canada Globalink Doctoral Exchange Scheme – round 2 now open

Date: 08/04/2020

A new and exciting opportunity for UK and Canadian doctoral students to participate in a UK-Canada research exchange scheme. Now open for the second call for applications, until 9 June 2020, the UK-Canada Globalink Doctoral Exchange Scheme will support travel, living and research costs for the students in their chosen field of study.

This scheme is open to doctoral students funded by the Research Councils of UK Research and Innovation including arts & humanities students funded by AHRC. Students can see a list of Canadian Professors who have registered an interest in hearing form UKRI students. This page will be updated with new details as they are received. Students are also encouraged to make contact with other Canadian Professors who they are interested in working with.

UK Research and Innovation is fully aware that in the current climate a call for international exchange of students is logistically challenging. However, in the meantime it is important to maintain the aspiration of the programme and therefore we continue to encourage students to consider this call, and the opportunity within the full bounds of the call timeline. The earliest possible start date for placements funded through this call is October 2020, and grants will be awarded as 12-month research grants to maximise flexibility in when the placement is taken. Therefore, a placement before the end of September 2021 remains a possibility. UKRI will keep this situation under review as the global response to COVID-19 develops and maintain flexibility accordingly.
