The rare Charitable Research Reserve has partnered with Cambridge & North Dumfries Community Foundation, Ages Foundation Fund to financially assist students in pursuit of higher education as they
tackle important environmental issues. The Research Fellowship & Bursaries program will allow students to study in a relatively undisturbed, yet highly accessible site in Waterloo Region.
Applications that utilize multiple knowledge systems and diverse methodologies will be prioritized. The monetary awards will help ensure successful candidates have the necessary resources to conduct and report on their research at rare. We support diverse, inclusive and equitable practices and approaches to environmental issues as we work toward meaningful reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples (self-identified and status First Nations, Métis & Inuit) of Turtle Island. We encourage applications from Indigenous students utilizing Indigenous and/or Western knowledge systems and methodologies. Four recipients will be selected and awarded amounts of: $4,000, $2,000, and two $1,000 awards.
