The Lorraine Allison Scholarship
The Lorraine Allison Scholarship is open to any student enrolled at a Canadian university in a program of graduate study related to northern issues, whose application best addresses academic excellence, a demonstrated commitment to northern research, and a desire for research results to be beneficial to northerners, especially Native northerners. Candidates in biological science fields will be preferred, but social science topics will also be considered. Scholars from Yukon, the Northwest Territories and Nunavut are encouraged to apply.
There is no application form. Each application must contain:
* a two-page description of the northern studies program and relevant project(s) being undertaken;
* three letters of reference from the applicant's current or past professors;
* a complete curriculum vitae with academic transcripts; and
* a separate sheet of paper listing current sources and amounts of research funding, including scholarships, grants and bursaries.
Please enclose your e-mail address if you have one. If you are applying for both the Jennifer Robinson and Lorraine Allison scholarships please submit two application packets with separate cover letters. One application packet may be a photocopy of the other.
The current annual value of the scholarship is $2000. The scholarship is for one year with a possibility of renewal following receipt of a satisfactory progress report and reapplication. The deadline for applications is January 10, and the selection committee will notify the winning applicant in February.
