Northern Scientific Training Program

Are you conducting Research in the Canadian Arctic?

Take advantage of this funding opportunity offered by the Polar Knowledge Canada called the Northern Scientific Training Program. It is designed to support students interested in solving the pressing environmental, health, cultural, socio-economic, political, educational, legal, engineering or resource development challenges facing the Arctic and its peoples.

This program makes it possible for senior undergraduate and graduate students to address these issues by providing supplementary funding to offset the additional costs associated with northern travel, accommodations, freight and translators/interpreters.

Over 300 York University graduate and undergraduate students have gained experience conducting research in Canada’s North through the NSTP.

You are eligible for NSTP funding if you are a Canadian citizen or landed immigrant and will be undertaking thesis research (BA, MA or PhD) in all disciplines with a York University professor in the North during 2018. For more information visit the Polar Knowledge Canada.

To apply visit the Northern Scientific Training Program online application system.

DEADLINE FOR APPLICATION: Applicants from York University must submit their application through the NSTP online system by Friday  November 17, 2017 to be considered.
