UNBC, Mitacs partner to create Indigenous Research Ambassador Program

The University of Northern British Columbia and Mitacs have partnered on a new Indigenous Research Ambassador Program. Indigenous students will be able to take advantage of 10 research internships and 12 scholarships as they learn how to introduce culturally sensitive and collaborative, community-based research tools to other students. The program will also engage students in learning opportunities, foster connections to researchers and communities, and provide leadership and mentorship opportunities. “Partnerships on such critical areas of need are vital to advancing Truth and Reconciliation while also providing rich, experiential learning opportunities for UNBC students,” said UNBC President Dr Geoff Payne.
