Extended Application Deadline: Thursday, September 29th, 2022
In partnership with the Canadian Nurses Foundation (CNF), the Canadian Consortium on Neurodegeneration in Aging (CCNA) is offering student awards to support the research activities of a nurse, enrolled full time in a Master’s or PhD program.
This award is intended to support student success in their academic program and promote connection to the CCNA. To be considered for an award, nursing research activities must be within in one of the following areas:
- Indigenous dementia-related research based on principles of respectful research partnerships between Indigenous communities and/or organizations and researchers.
- Research related to inclusion, diversity, equity and accessibility of people living with dementia and their care partners.
- Two awards are available in 2022. Each award is valued at $15,000 per student in the first year (2022-2023) with the opportunity for a $10,000 renewal for a second year (2023-2024).
- Funding may be renewed for a second year provided recipients are in good standing with their nursing program, and based on demonstrated progress on their research project. Recipients will be required to complete an interim progress report that will be evaluated by the CCNA-CNF Review Committee.
- Nursing students or students with nursing backgrounds enrolled full-time in a Master’s or PhD degree program relevant to inclusion, equity, diversity and accessibility research, with a focus on dementia-related issues.
- Nursing students or students with nursing backgrounds enrolled full-time in a Master’s or PhD degree program relevant to Indigenous dementia research (broadly defined) at a post-secondary academic institution in Canada.
- Students must have, or be willing to form, a mentorship link with a CCNA-affiliated Investigator.
- Note that, self-identified First Nations, Métis, Inuit, and BIPOC nurses enrolled full-time in a Master’s or PhD degree programs at a post-secondary academic institution in Canada will be given preference.
