The Office of the Vice-President, Research awarded research scholarships to nine exceptional doctoral students across campus. These Graduate Student Knowledge Mobilization Training Scholarships were designed to offer graduate students a $7,000 stipend as well as the opportunity to develop their foundational knowledge and skills in knowledge mobilization by providing them access to workshops, mentorship and networking activities.

“We received 80 applications for this scholarship competition which demonstrated how motivated our doctoral students are to produce research and outputs that will influence, impact and transform society,” said Terry Campbell, assistant vice-president, research services. "Our warmest congratulations to the nine awardees who are making considerable efforts to connect science with the people who can use it."

With their research and their knowledge mobilization skills, these graduate students are well under way to become the next generation of engaged scholars that will contribute to tackling the University of Ottawa’s strategic research priorities: advancing just societies, shaping the digital world, creating a sustainable environment and enabling lifelong health and wellness.
