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.

Recipients of the RIC Award will receive:

  • $2000-$3000 cash award
  • Complimentary registration to the Canadian Association of Research Administrators Annual Conference, May-June 2022, where they will be invited to present on their engaged research project at a featured Knowledge Mobilization session
  • Complimentary registration to the next Canadian Knowledge Mobilization Forum, June 2022
  • 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 .

The deadline of the 2021-2022 competition is February 28, 2022, 11:59pm (Pacific Time). Applications should be submitted online. For more details, see the 2021-2022 Call for Applications.
