Research Internship Program

 

Each year, the CRFM offers two graduate-level students the opportunity to perform a 10-week internship in Saskatchewan to carry out field work connected with their research.

The internship is also open to community researchers with independent research experience.

The internship, which takes place between May and August, is paid to a maximum of $5,000.

N.B.: Travel costs for candidates from outside Saskatchewan are not covered by the CRFM. A number of universities and governments offer travel bursaries. 

Admissibility

To be admissible, projects must focus on a topic related to one of the following research areas: 

  • Community engagement and development 
  • Cultural and national inclusion and differentiation 
  • Transmission and expansion of heritage 
  • Language, socialization, and learning 

Projects must also:

  • Include an empirical component with a population or community organization (may also include archival research);
  • Include a partnership with a community organization (in development, but to be anticipated);
