Guidelines - Application form

The FQRNT supports the international mobility of Master's and PhD students who are members of a strategic cluster via an international internship program. This three-year program provides networks, such as the RQR, with funds necessary to award scholarships to graduate students who wish to carry out an international internship lasting, on average, six months (minimum 2 months, maximum 12 months). Awards are  made based on the needs of the candidates, network and participants.

Each scholarship will be of a maximum value of $15 000. This amount will cover the student’s travel and living expenses.

Note that awards will be made on a first-come, first-served basis.
