RIC Award

The Research Impact Canada Engaged Scholarship Award for Graduate Students (RIC Award) recognizes graduate students that conduct research projects following engaged scholarship principles. These principles lead to increased awareness of audiences beyond academia or changes in stakeholder actions, practices, guidelines or policies. This award recognizes engaged scholarship (“making research with the people who benefit from it”), co-creation of knowledge or integrated knowledge translation efforts among graduate students of our Canadian member institutions, regardless of discipline.

The 2024 competition is closed!
