As part of Concordia’s commitment to developing Indigenous research capacity and creating new funding opportunities for Indigenous students, the Office of Indigenous Directions has created an annual competition based on research excellence. This award competition aims to provide Indigenous students with a platform to present and highlight the importance of their research interests to an audience. The competition emphasizes Indigenous values and knowledge systems. In addition, it seeks to highlight research projects that stand to benefit Indigenous communities.

Eligible students are asked to submit an application explaining why their research projects are important to them and Indigenous communities. Each shortlisted candidate will receive funds to prepare their presentations. Candidates will also benefit from:

·     Support from faculty on making impactful presentations

·     Opportunities for peer feedback and workshopping

·     Experience sharing research with a large audience

·     Inclusion of Miywâcimo! on their co-curricular record

Finalists will be invited to make a short 4-minute pitch in front of an audience. Presentations will be judged by a panel composed of Concordia professors and Indigenous community members. The winner and runner-up of the competition will receive awards to help them complete their research and sustain them during the course of their graduate degrees. 

How can you participate? Join us in person or online by registering for the Zoom Meeting or watching live on YouTube.
