These members are able to apply for funding as long as they fulfill the eligibility criteria noted for each funding opportunity.

Undergraduate members are eligible for some funding opportunities. Visiting student members are not eligible for any funding.

Other Categories

  • Honorary Lifetime Member:  This honorary membership is given to those who were either a CIRMMT Regular Member and have retired from active academic service, or an emeritus professor, or equivalent, in recognition of their contributions to research in fields at the core of CIRMMT’s mission or having made a highly significant contribution to the activities and community of CIRMMT over the course of their career.

  • Visiting Researchers and Artists: CIRMMT hosts visiting researchers from around the world for a limited time. They have the same rights of membership as Collaborators for the duration of their stay at the Centre. Scholars and artists who are interested in traveling to Montreal to work on a project with one or more CIRMMT members are asked to contact the relevant member(s) directly.
