A ellos la palabra: los becarios de IDRC comparten sus experiencias

IDRC cuenta con una larga y orgullosa historia de apoyo a nuevos investigadores en Canadá y en países de bajo y mediano ingreso. Este apoyo continuo da lugar a la creación de un grupo de investigadores capacitados y experimentados que utilizarán sus investigaciones de manera innovadora para resolver mejor todo tipo de problemas en el área de desarrollo.

Nuestros programas de becas y premios ayudan a desarrollar la capacidad y a avanzar en la carrera de las personas financiando iniciativas de educación universitaria y movilidad académica, investigación, desarrollo de habilidades complementarias y experiencia práctica.

Cada año, IDRC ofrece a los estudiantes de posgrado la oportunidad de financiar su trabajo de desarrollo innovador a través de:

  • Becas de Investigación de IDRC: una docena de jóvenes investigadores y profesionales pasan un año en IDRC realizando investigaciones de campo mientras adquieren experiencia en la gestión de programas; 
  • Premios de investigación doctoral del IDRC : cada año, 20 investigadores reciben hasta $20,000 para apoyar su investigación de campo; y
  • Subvenciones y premios financiados por asociados individuales: Cada año, aproximadamente 4-6 investigadores reciben apoyo a través de la Beca de Investigación de Bentley, la Beca de Investigación Bene, el Fondo Hopper-Bhatia Canadá y la Beca Rachel DesRosiers.

Otros programas de becas apoyados por IDRC:

  • Becarios Avanzados Reina Elizabeth II: Este programa de becas, administrado por Universidades de Canadá, apoya hasta 450 investigadores por un período de cinco años.
  • Becas de investigación para mujeres científicas al comienzo de su carrera: este nuevo programa, que se espera que comience a principios de 2018, apoyará a 60 mujeres científicas durante cinco años. El programa será administrado por la Organización de Mujeres Científicas del Mundo en Desarrollo (OWSD).
  • Premios de Desarrollo Profesional: permite que personas con experiencia profesional desarrollen plenamente sus habilidades y conocimientos colaborando con el personal de IDRC en tareas relacionadas con programas e investigación.
