Deadline: 30th October 2023 | For research leaders of tomorrow. Expand your network, collaborate across disciplines, and explore cutting-edge ideas with unrestricted research support. Join our community of international researchers addressing the most important questions facing science and humanity.

The CIFAR Azrieli Global Scholars program provides:


Interdisciplinary interactions

Pursuing the most exciting and important research questions requires scholars who can move beyond their own research areas to take a fresh look at a problem.

CIFAR helps early-career researchers think and work outside their silos by facilitating dialogue between diverse disciplines and immersing them in our research programs for a truly enriching experience.


Leadership development

Excellent management and communication skills will be key to success in the demanding and competitive world of research.

Through annual meetings of CIFAR Azrieli Global Scholars from across CIFAR’s research programs, and additional learning experiences, CIFAR creates a variety oftraining opportunities on themes related to leadership development.


Engagement in global communities

Tomorrow’s research leaders must effectively engage key stakeholders in their communities, in government, industry, or the general public to both inform and disseminate their work.

“We provide early-career researchers opportunities to increase the impact of their research by interacting with leaders both within and outside of academia.”
