Research and Engagement Fund

Research plays an important role in informing decisions and actions for issues affecting Northern regions. In recognition of Memorial University’s commitment to respectful, ethical, and deeply collaborative partnerships with Indigenous and Northern people and UArctic values, the Indigenous and Northern Collaborative Research and Education Engagement Fund supports:

  • Researchers: in establishing new relationships or strengthening existing ones for potential collaborative, co-created projects;
  • Relationships: for potential research, education, and engagement partnership initiatives between Indigenous and Northern regions and researchers, faculty, staff, and students of UArctic member institutions;
  • Partnership Projects: that meet the needs of Indigenous and Northern people and communities.

Memorial University and UArctic encourage partnerships between Northern Canadian UArctic, Canadian, and international UArctic members for collaborative research and education initiatives.
