The primary goal of the CANADA-HOPE Scholarship Program is to further develop international collaborative efforts between researchers. The short term goal is to enable promising individuals to be mentored by prominent Canadian researchers. The long term objective of the Program is to enable promising scientists and clinicians from Low and Middle Income Countries (LMIC), as identified by the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) and the United Nations (UN), to be exposed to some of the best science, laboratories and training environments in Canada. The next two rounds of this program will focus on sub continental South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa.

Trainee stipend: $ 40,000 or $50,000 per annum. The stipend level is related to the major degree, licensure (where applicable) and experience of the applicant. Stipends are valued in Canadian dollars and are taxable. The annual stipend level for those with a PhD degree (or equivalent) is $40,000 per annum. The following stipend levels apply to health professionals who hold licensure in Canada or hold an educational license at the time of taking up the award. The stipend level is dependent upon the number of years of research or clinical training completed since obtaining the health professional degree. The goals of the Program are to encourage a broad spectrum of foreign post-doctoral scholars (PhDs, MDs or health professionals) to train in health and health related areas which in the long term, would lead to the development of sustainable programs to help people in developing countries.
