Polar Knowledge Canada Call for Funding Applications

Polar Knowledge Canada (POLAR) has launched its Call for Funding Applications: 2020 to 2023 in support of key themes under its Northern Science and Technology (NST) and Polar Knowledge Application (PKA) Programs.

The Northern Science and Technology (NST) Program aims to anchor a strong research presence in Canada’s Arctic. This program will create an environment in which both Indigenous and local knowledge and science contribute to addressing challenges in the Arctic.  

The Polar Knowledge Application (PKA) Program aims to promote and further strengthen science and technology nationally and internationally and build science capacity through training, outreach, increased knowledge sharing and learning opportunities. The program aims to enhance and build awareness of the polar regions across Canada through fostering collaborations with other organizations to promote Canadian northern science and technology and advance the next generation of researchers and highly qualified personnel.

The maximum amount of funding considered per project is $150,000 per year for up to 3 years. The total request for funding for each project cannot exceed $450,000.

The deadline for submitting applications is April 30, 2019 23:59 (Pacific Time).
