RBC now accepting applications for Innovation Post-Doctoral and Graduate Fellowships

The Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) Innovation Post-Doctoral & Graduate Fellowships at The University of Toronto will support research and innovation at the University of Toronto.

The RBC Innovation Fellowship program will recognize emerging leaders who are establishing a record of research, scholarship and impact, and exhibit the potential to make significant contributions to the body of research in the field of entrepreneurship and innovation. In addition to research excellence, preference will be given to those who have a demonstrated and/or future interest in entrepreneurship and company creation.

Various outcomes and new knowledge of the RBC Fellows may be translated into knowledge with applications for policymakers, educators, service providers and entrepreneurs both at the University of Toronto and further afield.

Three fellows a year will be selected from a variety of disciplines:

  • RBC Innovation Post-Doctoral Fellowship – 1 post-doctoral fellowship valued at $100,000 over 2 years ($50K/yr. for 2 years)
  • RBC Innovation Graduate Fellowship – 2 graduate student scholarships valued at $50,000 over 2 years ($25K/yr. for 2 years)

The RBC may further support the selected Fellows by providing access to RBC research personnel, subject-matter and industry experts as well as access to proprietary datasets and RBC infrastructure when appropriate.
