Research Grants

The Research Assistant Program provides funding towards the wages of any NWT resident hired as a research assistant.  Applications must demonstrate that the assistant(s) will be employed in meaningful work that will develop northern-based research capacity.

The Research Fellowship Program provides funding towards the expenses associated with research projects based in the NWT.  Applicants must demonstrate that the proposed project will involve the meaningful participation of NWT residents and, in turn, develop a northern-based research capacity.  Additionally, the research proposal must be well-defined, methodologically sound, and achievable within the proposed budget, timeframe and personnel resources.

The deadline for applications is midnight (MST) on January 15th.
