Indigenous PhD students in their 4th year are now able to apply for 5th year funding through the IGF 5th Award. The award, valued at $18,200 per annum plus tuition, is awarded on the recommendation of the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies to full-time Indigenous doctoral students from all disciplines to fund their 5th year of study, where research involves community-engaged methodologies and approaches.

IGF Research & Travel Award

Funding in support of research and travel expenses for Indigenous graduate students has been made available through the IGF Research & Travel Award to current holders of the Indigenous Graduate Fellowship. Recipients of the award will be engaged in work that contributes directly or indirectly to community engagement and relationship building with Indigenous communities. Successful candidates will receive a minimum of $3,000 for Master’s students and a minimum of $5,000 for Doctoral students.  Additional funding may be offered depending on budget availability.
