INTRODUCTION

The Fonds de recherche du Québec – Nature et technologies (FRQNT) is responsible for managing the program. It was commissioned by the Ministère de l’Éducation et de l’Enseignement supérieur du Québec (MEES) which provides the funding. The program has a component open to students of all countries and six specific components reserved for students from Brazil, China, India, Israel, Mexico and Wallonia. These specific components arise from agreements concluded between Québec and foreign governments.

The objective of the Merit Scholarship Program for Foreign Students (PBEEE) is to support the internationalization of research activities in Québec’s institutions of higher education, to attract top foreign researchers and students, and to promote international recognition of Québec universities and College Centres for the Transfer of Technologies (CCTT).

The program covers higher education as a whole by giving to the CCTT researchers and administrators the opportunity to participate.

More generally, the awarding of scholarships for foreign students aims at creating cultural links and allowing the setting up of possible common scientific research projects.

The program also represents an instrument for the MEES to support the Government of Québec’s scientific policy.

Features of the scholarships

The Merit Scholarship Programs for Foreign Students has three components:

  • Doctoral research scholarships (V1, 1B, 1C, 1I, 1IS, 1M, 1W)

  • Postdoctoral scholarships (V2, 2B, 2C, 2I, 2M)

  • Short-term research or professional development scholarships (V3, 3B, 3C, 3I, 3IS, 3M, 3W)
