Global Fellowships                                               

The Marie Sklodowska-Curie (MSC) Global Fellowship opportunity is offered by the European Commission and is designed to help create long-term collaborations and new knowledge transfer between European Member States (MS) and Associated Countries (AC) and countries outside Europe (Third Countries) such as Canada.

These fellowships enable experienced European researchers (PhD or with 4 years of full-time research experience) who are national or long term residents of a MS or AC to be trained and to acquire new knowledge in a Third Country (TC) research partner organization (e.g. U of T) during an Outgoing Phase with a total duration of 12-24 months.   Fellows must return to the European Host Organization for a mandatory 12 month period following their outgoing phase.

Fellow remain employees of their European Host Organization during the outgoing phase of their fellowship. When a Fellowship is awarded the European Host Organization and the University of Toronto will enter into a secondment/hosting agreement.  That agreement will address the transfer of funds including research expenses, travel and overhead.

Application Process 

The application is processed by the European Host Organization through the European  Commission’s Online Submission Service (SEP) and it is the responsibility of the European Host Organization’s Supervisor to coordinate and submit the application via the EC system.  The partner organization (i.e. Uof T) is required to provide a letter of commitment for the application signed by an authorized institutional official (i.e. University’s Research Office)

UofT Submission Process 

The University’s PIC #  is 999845252.  The appropriate UofT contact (see below) should be added to the “Other Contact Persons” in the application

By the internal deadline, the applicant’s proposed UofT Supervisor must upload & submit the following documents through the University’s My Research Application (MRA) System

  •  Applicant’s application
  • Editable draft letter of commitment (see page 45 of the application instruction for requirements)

Once the MRA entry is approved, the University’s Research Services Office (RSO) will review, edit and forward the revised letter of commitment to the UofT Supervisor for final review.  Once this is complete, RSO will arrange for sign-off on the revised letter of commitment and then forward the signed letter to the UofT Supervisor and applicant for inclusion in the application.
