Now Open for Applications: 2021 Indigenous Studentship for the Advancement of Women


** Shared on behalf of Mental Health Research Canada (MHRC) and the Canadian Women’s Foundation **



MHRC is proud to partner with the Canadian Women’s Foundation on a funding opportunity for a woman-identifying Indigenous student to work directly with the Foundation on a mental health research project relevant to the needs of Canadian women. The student is eligible if she is enrolled in an accredited master’s-level degree at a university or a post-graduate certificate at a college.

This $15K, six-month-term studentship is part of MHRC’s 2021-2022 Studentship Cycle, where students share their time between academic institutions and community service providers, tying together their research with the needs of the end-users — the community and people with lived experience.

The proposed research project must align with one (or both) of the two project themes and, if selected, will be undertaken under the joint supervision of the Canadian Women’s Foundation and the student’s academic supervisor:

  1. Transportation for women and violence against women
  2. Online hate and how it affects women

If you are eligible, please carefully read the attached Call for Applications and apply at by July 30, 2021!
