Fellowships and Grants for Graduate Students
The JIGES Fellowships and Grants for Graduate Students are awarded on a competitive basis to full-time University of Toronto graduate students whose research has either a substantial German content or is comparative, drawing its subject matter from two or more European countries, one of which must be Germany. Priority is given to students who need to conduct research in Germany.
For PhD students only. The JIGES Graduate Research Fellowship supports graduate students who are in the research and writing phase of their dissertations and for whom a period of residence in Germany is necessary. The award is intended to allow students to carry out research in Germany, and therefore precludes taking up work as a research assistant or teaching assistant during the fall semester.

Marie Curie Incoming International Fellowships
Marie Curie Incoming International Fellowships are individual fellowships that aim to attract top-class researchers from third countries to work and undertake research training in Europe from 1 to 2 years (incoming phase), with a view to developing mutually-beneficial research co-operation. In the case of emerging and transition economies and developing countries, the scheme may assist fellows to return to their country of origin for, typically, half the duration of the first phase (re-integration phase). Proposals from all areas of scientific and technological research of interest to the European Community are accepted and there are no pre-defined priority areas. More infomrtaion here.
