The Researcher Capacity Development (RCD) program provides university and college researchers working in the Northwest Territories (NWT) with funding to hire NWT residents to work on their research projects. This program helps researchers hire Indigenous and local residents to do research in the NWT, with the goal of building research skills and experience among NWT residents.

Applicants must be academic researchers affiliated with a recognized degree-granting college or university. Proposals are accepted on a rolling basis.
