Queen Elizabeth Scholars (QES) program

The Queen Elizabeth Scholars (QES) program was created to improve global talent exchange between Canada and other nations. The 2024 QES competition will support projects that focus on health, education, social and economic development, while enhancing academic diplomacy. Projects will support international study, research or internships for outbound Canadian students and/or study and research for inbound international graduate students. All QES funded activities must be for academic credit/recognition.

Each Canadian university may submit one multi-year project proposal seeking funding of up to $300,000. Proposals must demonstrate a partnership between a Canadian university and a partner institution/organization in at least one of the eligible countries.* Priority will be given to project proposals that focus on diversity and inclusion and result in an increased contribution to local and global communities by young leaders.

Letters of Intent: Those who wish to submit a QES project proposal must submit a Letter of Intent (see link below) by 4:00pm on Monday 12 June 2023.
