Applications are now open for Weston Family Awards in Northern Research Canada 2020. Since 2007, The Weston Family Awards in Northern Research (previously The W Garfield Weston Awards in Northern Research) have provided unparalleled support to young scientists in Canada pursuing research in Canada’s North.
Moreover, funded by the W Garfield Weston Foundation, these annual awards are some of the most prestigious in the country for students pursuing a master’s degree, PhD or postdoctoral fellowship. Over 270 early-career researchers have been selected to receive an award since the program’s inception, forming a community of Weston Family Northern Scientists who are at the forefront of northern scholarship and who are helping shape a better future for Canada and the world.
Further, Weston Family Award winners undertake research projects across a broad spectrum of fields and disciplines in the natural sciences, including studies of northern ecosystems, biodiversity, flora and fauna, meteorology, oceanography, glaciology, geography, and environmental studies.
All applicants must submit their application through the Scholarship Partners Canada (SPC) online portal. Further, they also need to fill and submit the online application.
