Apply for the Government of Canada Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships Program. The Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships program provides funding to the very best postdoctoral applicants, both nationally and internationally, who will positively contribute to the country’s economic, social, and research-based growth. The objective of the Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships program is to:

  • Attract and retain top-tier postdoctoral talent, both nationally and internationally.
  • Develop their leadership potential.
  • Position them for success as research leaders of tomorrow.


The Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships program is unique in its emphasis on the synergy between:

  • The applicant: their individual merit and potential to launch a successful research-intensive career.
  • The host institution: their commitment to the research program and alignment with the institution’s strategic priorities

Furthermore, an applicant to the Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships program must complete their application in full collaboration with the proposed host institution.


Prospective candidates wishing to apply for a Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship must do so in close collaboration with the host institution at which they seek to conduct their postdoctoral training. In light of the small number of awards in the program, and the demands of both the application process and the review process, institutions have been asked to be highly selective in terms of the applicants they endorse, as Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships will ultimately be awarded to a prestigious group of researchers who have demonstrated both research excellence and leadership, and synergy with the institution’s strategic priorities. Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships awards must be taken up and held at the host institution that provided the initial endorsement.


Canadian and international candidates are eligible to apply for a Banting Postdoctoral Fellowship. Moreover, each Government of Canada Fellowships Program is valued at $70,000 (taxable) per annum for two years.


  • The government of Canada Banting Postdoctoral Fellowships Program is open to Canadian citizens, permanent residents of Canada, and foreign citizens.
  • Also, applicants for this program must fulfill all degree requirements for a PhD, PhD-equivalent or health professional degree.
  • Applicants who have not fulfilled all requirements for their degree at the time of application must submit proof no later than October 15, 2022.
