The Canadian post-secondary institution must:

Eligible and complete applications will be evaluated based on the following criteria:
- the merit of the research or study to be undertaken in Canada;
- the benefit to the home institution and peers;
- the benefit to the Canadian institution, supervisor and peers;
- strength of the linkages to be created through the proposed exchange; and
- rankings submitted by the Canadian institution.
