Organized by: University of Toronto, Helen Lasthiokis

Doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows (PDFs) are intrinsic to the postsecondary research that results in benefits for our economy and society. The Fundamental Science Review highlighted this point but also found that, despite significant increases in graduate enrolments, the number of core graduate awards and PDF stipends as well as the amount of the awards, has not changed in more than a decade. In responding to the Review as part of Budget 2018, the federal Government noted that it would undertake work to determine how to better support this next generation of researchers through scholarships and fellowships.

An international keynote speaker and a diverse panel will discuss policy models and opportunities to reinvigorate scholarships and fellowships for graduate students and PDFs, and how the use of these awards can attract diverse talent from Canada and internationally.
