Graduate Scholarships (MA, MSc, PhD)

The Nasivvik Centre is not currently offering any funding opportunities. Please re-visit our website for changes and updates at a later time.

Description

Part of the Nasivvik Centreâs mandate involves providing support for research and training of graduate students registered in a masters or doctoral degree program in which a thesis is a major component.  Each year, applications are invited from students whose graduate research focuses on an issue related to the intersection between environment and health in Inuit communities.  The connection to and significance of the research for an important health issue among Inuit must be explicitly described in the application. This award program is designed to support projects that are: being conducted in cooperation with an Inuit community or organization; inclusive of in-community research time, and; that have a high probability of contributing to our understanding of a specific Inuit environmental health issue as well as contributing to the studentâs education in Inuit health.


Objectives of the Graduate Scholarship Program

  • To stimulate interest in research on key environmental health topics of importance to Inuit communities and organizations;
  • To provide support to graduate students for training and research in Inuit environmental health;
  • To support the development of highly qualified researchers with knowledge and experience in Inuit environment and health issues;
  • To enhance/build capacity among Inuit communities, organizations and individuals to participate in and use results from Inuit environmental health research (research that examines aspects of the environment as a determinant of human health).

Note: this competition is not designed to support projects that examine the health of ecosystems or specific components of the environment without inclusion of their impacts on or benefits to human health.
