Support leading edge research

For more than a quarter of a century, a Canadian institute has invited the world’s most brilliant minds to seek new answers at the frontiers of human knowledge. CIFAR members demonstrate more than leadership in their fields: they also have a willingness to take big risks, ask big questions, and go further.

That’s no easy feat.

Advanced research is big.

The scale, time, scope and complexities are enormous. CIFAR asks questions so profound that they transcend institutions, borders, disciplines and fields.

No single institution anywhere in the world does what CIFAR does. We couldn’t do this without you.

In order to continue to attract excellence, we need your support.

Join the CIFAR family. Join the discussion.


Support talented early-career researchers

CIFAR fosters Canada’s future research leaders.

Preparing cohorts of broad-thinking early-career researchers for leadership in academia, industry and government is a rare and bold advance.

Our Global Academy is an elite program that offers unparalleled leadership opportunities for gifted early-career scholars. These researchers participate in interdisciplinary research at the highest international standards.

A donation to CIFAR also supports early career researchers through many other initiatives, including special workshops and support for postdoctoral fellows.

You can help shape the future of research in Canada by supporting outstanding early-career researchers at a critical point in their professional development.
