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 2022 competition is now closed

Recipients of the RIC Award will receive:

  • $2000-$3000 cash award
  • Complimentary registration to the Canadian Association of Research Administrators Annual Conference
  • Complimentary registration to the next Canadian Knowledge Mobilization Forum
  • Access to a network of more than 60 active knowledge mobilization professionals representing 20+ Canadian institutions

Recipients will be invited to participate in one or more of the network’s national webinar sessions and will be featured on the RIC website and across social media channels .

NOTE: Refer to the list of RIC member institutions to determine whether you are eligible to submit an application to the Award.
