Bursary for students: Sistering Indigenous and Western Science

SINEWS (Sistering Indigenous and Western Science) is a $12,000 bursary designed to help female Indigenous and non-Indigenous students take initiative in their research. Students will receive mentorship, be presented with an opportunity to expand their professional network, and foster positive relations between Indigenous and non-Indigenous women and their communities. 

This bursary is for women who are currently enrolled in post-secondary institutions in the 2018-19 school year. Awards will be given to pairs of women, one of who must identify as Indigenous, while the other is non-Indigenous, to complete a summer research project in a topic that supports Indigenous public interests, and also supports the research conducted at Natural Resources Canada. Students are encouraged to apply as a self-identified pair; however, interested individuals can go to the SINEWS website to “Look for a Partner” or apply as an individual to be matched with a partner by the SINEWS team.

The deadline for applications is February 18, 2019. For more information, visit the SINEWS website
