About the Organization

Since our founding in 1982, CIFAR has evolved and grown from a small group of Canadian academics to a leader in the global research community.

More than 1,000 researchers from over 30 countries have contributed to our research programs as fellows, advisors, Canada CIFAR AI Chairs, and CIFAR Azrieli Global Scholars over the years. Our community of researchers is regularly recognized with major research awards including the Breakthrough Prize, the Turing Award, the Körber European Science Prize, and the Nobel Prize.

Every year, we welcome over 3,000 international policy makers, scholars, and citizens to our workshops, symposia, and public events.

About the Program

Expand your network, collaborate across disciplines, and explore cutting-edge ideas with unrestricted research support. Join our community of international researchers addressing the most important questions facing science and humanity.

The CIFAR Azrieli Global Scholars program provides:

Interdisciplinary interactions

  • Pursuing the most exciting and important research questions requires scholars who can move beyond their own research areas to take a fresh look at a problem.
  • CIFAR helps early-career researchers think and work outside their silos by facilitating dialogue between diverse disciplines and immersing them in our research programs for a truly enriching experience. icons-copy-08

Leadership development

  • Through annual meetings of CIFAR Azrieli Global Scholars from across CIFAR’s research programs, and additional learning experiences, CIFAR creates a variety of training opportunities on themes related to leadership development.

Engagement in global communities

  • Tomorrow’s research leaders must effectively engage key stakeholders in their communities, in government, industry, or the general public to both inform and disseminate their work.
  • We provide early-career researchers opportunities to increase the impact of their research by interacting with leaders both within and outside of academia.
