QES – Advanced Scholars

About QES – Advanced Scholars

Thanks to the generous financial support of $10 million from the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) and $2.5 million from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Centre (SSHRC), the QES program expanded its reach to support doctoral researchers, post-doctoral fellows and early career researchers from Canada and Low-and-Middle Income countries (LMICs) to develop solutions to complex national and global challenges. The QES-AS focuses on institutional capacity strengthening of the partner institutions from the Global South and is expected to engage approximately 420 researchers in international research projects, contributing to improved global talent exchange between Canada and other nations.
