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?
  • We are looking for opportunities for students! 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 : imnpn@uvic.ca. We would be happy to advertise any placements through our network!
