Annex Countries

The CRIPA scholarship is an additional support for a full-time project run by a student or Postdoc in a laboratory of a researcher member of the CRIPA. Under no circumstances can the CRIPA provide scholarships for maternity or sick leave, but a short deferral of payment may be requested, given that the Director of CRIPA * can refuse the postponement and cancel the portion of the grant concerned without justification.


The cumulation of a CRIPA grant simultaneously with another financial support:

  • from another scholarship competition is prohibited: no accumulation with NSERC or FRQ scholarships; no cumulation for a similar period (transferable remittance *),

  • from funding from the researcher's research funds is at the discretion of the supervising researcher. Researchers' research funds are obtained by awarding grants in competitions to which researchers have applied, which is why they may decide not to authorize the accumulation of scholarships for the same student. CRIPA does not manage the funding discussions between the students and their supervisor, it is recommended that these be conducted prior to the submission of an application.


These scholarships cover the period of 4 month.
- 2 M.Sc. scholarships of $4250 each
- 2 Ph.D. scholarships of $5500 each
