Applications now open for Research CASH: a research grant-writing workshop!

January, 17 2020

The Aurora Research Institute (ARI), the research division of Aurora College, along with Hotıì ts’eeda: NWT SPOR SUPPORT Unit, is pleased to announce a grant writing workshop: Research CASH (Capacity, Access, and Strength Here).

This three-day workshop will guide participants through the development of a high quality, submission-ready research funding proposal to one of the Tri-Council agencies (SSHRC, CIHR, NSERC). The purpose of this workshop is to build Northern research capacity and increase NWT access to federal research funding programs. We ask that participants apply with a research project idea in mind, which they can bring to the workshop and work through with our mentors.

The workshop will be held in Inuvik on May 5-7, 2020. The workshop is open to people who are part of the NWT research community, either as researchers or community partners: Northern researchers, community health program staff, Indigenous and regional government and co-management board staff, knowledge users, and others who are commonly asked to partner on research initiatives. ARI will provide travel funds for successful applicants. Please note, spaces are limited.
