Irving Research Mentorship Awards


This program offers StFX students the opportunity to be involved in the creation of new knowledge and creative use of existing knowledge through original research carried out under the supervision of a faculty mentor. Through this program students will see the further development of knowledge as building on the knowledge they have acquired in their courses and will have the opportunity to develop and apply new analytic skills. Perhaps most importantly, through this program, students have the opportunity to participate in the community of researchers that share their interests. Many StFX students have, while still enrolled in Bachelors programs, presented papers at learned conferences, been authors on articles published in international journals, and/or contributed to knowledge mobilization through local, regional, national or international collaborations.
Funding to support student-researchers in summer research internships through the McKenna Centre for Leadership comes from Irving Oil.  To ensure that there are opportunities across the disciplines and faculties of the University, in 2016 there will be a minimum of six Student Summer Research Internships, worth up to $6000 each, for students enrolled in Bachelors programs at StFX.
The Internships support full time employment as a research assistant for a minimum of 12 weeks during the summer (May-August) period.  Full details are available at this link: Irving Mentorship Program: Student Summer Research Internships:  DEADLINE: NOON, FRIDAY FEBRUARY 10, 2017; submit applications to Office of the Associate Vice-President Research and Graduate Studies.
