Internal Award: Refugee and Newcomer Advisory Committee Research Grant
The Refugee and Newcomer Advisory Committee (RNAC) at SFU is offering two research grants of up to $10,000 to graduate students. Deadline: July 31, 2018.
The Graduate Student Research Grant is to support graduate student dissertation or thesis research. The proposed research should focus on a topic related to refugees migration and related newcomer issues. This may include areas such as migration patterns, refugee and asylum experiences, host country policies, settlement and integration issues. Projects may focus on Canada, another country, area or region, or they may be transnational in scope.
The funds may be spent on research-related travel, including transportation, and food and lodging while away; data collection; and costs related to tools necessary for data collection and analysis.
This grant is open to all SFU PhD and MA students in good standing; students with personal immigration experience are encouraged to apply. PhD students should have finished all coursework and requirements other than the dissertation. Both PhD and MA students should have their thesis proposal approved, or have the approval process scheduled before August 31, 2018. Funding is subject to proposal approval. If the proposal is not approved by the time the funding application is submitted, the applicant should state the expected approval date, and include a letter from the primary PhD or MA supervisor indicating the proposal’s feasibility and their expectation of its approval.
Funding is subject to appropriate ethics approval. Provide the ethics review number if available. If it is not available, provide documentation about ethics approval status.
By the end of September 2019, write a summary of funding spent. Present the research at a public workshop, conference or SFU event.
