The McGill School of Population and Global Health (SPGH) is launching a three-year Queen Elizabeth Scholars climate resiliency research and student-training initiative in partnership with the University of the West Indies (UWI). This training and research exchange program links cross-disciplinary research with practice between Canada and the Caribbean region.
Over the next three years (2022, 2023 and 2024), 6-7 graduate-level students enrolled at UWI will travel to McGill each year (July-September) to work on research projects supervised by McGill faculty members from any department. Students will be registered at McGill as Graduate Research Trainees, receive an award of up to $7,000, and receive credit from UWI for their internship. A cohort of 6-7 McGill students per year will undertake research and practice-based internships (May-August) with academic and community partners in Barbados and Trinidad. All students will participate in leadership-focused training and community engagement activities.
The current call for project submissions is open to McGill faculty members who are interested in supervising a graduate student intern from UWI for a 90-day period to work on a new or on-going research initiative related to climate change adaptation and resilient communities. For more information and to submit a project proposal please visit the SPGH website.
