New Opportunity for Early-Career Investigators
The CIFAR Azrieli Global Scholars program provides funding and support to help scholars build their research network and develop essential skills to become leaders. Global Scholars are researchers within five years of their first academic appointment from anywhere in the world.
The 2016 application period has now closed. The first cohort of Global Scholars will be announced in September 2016. Calls for applicants will be made on an annual basis. Click below to learn more about the program.
Tomorrow’s research leaders will play an important role in addressing the complex challenges facing humanity by transcending disciplinary boundaries. The most exciting research questions will require scholars who can move beyond their own research areas and take a fresh look at a problem. CIFAR is helping our early career researchers think and work outside their silos.
Leadership Skills Development
Tomorrow’s research leaders will face all the demands and competitive realities that their academic careers encompass by developing key management and communication skills. These early years provide a unique opportunity to form the foundation of their leadership approach in years to come. CIFAR is helping this promising group of young researchers develop the tool set they will need to succeed.
Engagement in Global Communities
Tomorrow’s research leaders will be innovative thought leaders outside academia by engaging with key constituents in their communities around the world. To do this, young researchers need opportunities to interact with key thought leaders outside of their traditional milieus. CIFAR is positioning our early career researchers as leaders within their own, and global, communities.
