SSHRC and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) have launched a pilot supplement opportunity to support First Nations, Inuit and Métis master’s students. The Indigenous Scholars Awards and Supplements Pilot Initiative is open to Indigenous students doing master’s level research in natural sciences, engineering, social sciences or humanities. Students can apply through this year’s Canada Graduate Scholarships—Master’s competition. The Indigenous Scholars Supplements provide increased and more flexible support to Indigenous students, and can be used for travel to northern and remote communities, honoraria for Elders, child- and elder-care, and more.
