CRE’s Centre for Indigenous Policy and Research is pleased to launch our second round of Indigenous Youth Research Grants. This program provides small grants of $1000 to Indigenous youth who want to design, develop, and implement their own community-based research projects in Canada.

The Indigenous Youth Research Grants Program is designed to ignite grassroots youth-led research projects and to highlight emerging researchers in new ways.

No research experience required.

Join us in taking up the challenge of reconciliation.
