SK-NEIHR Student Scholarship

Faculty at USask who are SK-NEIHR members are invited to nominate their graduate students for a one-year $20,000 scholarship for a currently registered graduate student they supervise who doesn’t already hold a major award. Students cannot be beyond their third year of a Masters, or fourth year of a PhD. Students should be doing research in the areas of Indigenous health, wellness, and/or community-based research, with priority to Indigenous students (must provide documentation, see here). To apply, supervisors should send a paragraph describing the student’s area/topic of research (max 150 words), confirmation of their support as a supervisor, and that the student meets eligibility criteria (for Indigenous identity please provide documentation as described here), to by February 20.
