IMN-PN CALL FOR RESEARCH EXPERIENCES AND INTERNSHIP PARTNERS

  • Do you or your organization have any upcoming priority wellness-related research projects for which you require the assistance of an Indigenous research assistant/ student intern?
  • On June 1st we will be launching a call for applications for our second intake for awards and stipends. The deadline is August 1st, 2018, with the aim of providing funding in time for the January to April semester. One of the funding opportunities available is the Research Experience Award, which provides $1,000-$2,000 (depending on level of study) to Indigenous students proposing to undertake a wellness-related research project initiated by and of interest to an Indigenous community or organization. These projects may involve, for instance, assisting with a community-level knowledge translation event, land-based research activity, community research engagement meeting, environmental scan or literature review. These research experiences are overseen by academic and community or organizational Mentors, who will provide guidance, supervision and mentorship to the Mentees.
  • If you are interested in hosting, supervising or mentoring a Mentee, please email Maria at: imnpn@uvic.ca. We would be happy to advertise any placements through our network or help match Mentees from our member database!

IMN-PN AWARD RECIPIENTS

  • Congratulations to all of the students whose applications were successful in their submissions! Thank you to the Mentors who supported these applications and to our members who volunteered there time and energy to this process.
  • We funded 30 applications for a total of $60,000!
