IAEA Fellowship Program

About the Fellowship

CBIE administers the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)-A United Nations Agency-Fellowship and Scientific Visit Program in Canada. Since 1987 this program has welcomed more than 1000 fellows to Canada from developing countries to study and train in fields relevant to the development priorities of their home countries.

How it works

IAEA implements their fellowships and scientific visits through CBIE, which works with nominated host institutions to ensure programming and costs are within recommended IAEA guidelines.

CBIE disburses allowances and payment of tuition or training fees, providing fellows and scientific visitors with visa support documents and offers immediate emergency response services.

Fellows and scientific visitors from developing countries who have been awarded training in Canada by IAEA are welcomed into Canadian institutions.


The fellows and scientific visitors train in fields that are relevant to the development priorities of their home countries and, on their return, contribute to achieving those priorities through capacity building of their home countries.
