The Faculty of Mathematics is pleased to offer the Indigenous and Black Engineering and Technology (IBET) Momentum Fellowship. As co-creators with the Faculty of Engineering, we are committed to increasing the diversity of the Canadian workforce by enhancing the Faculty’s efforts to support and prepare tomorrow’s diverse leaders.

Two IBET Momentum Fellowships are available to Faculty of Mathematics doctoral students registered full-time in Spring 2021 or later. Each Fellowship is valued at $25,000 per year with an additional $5,000 per year in the form of a Graduate Research Studentship (GRS) for a maximum of 4 years/12 terms.
