In Budget 2018, the government of Canada committed to investing $925 million over 5 years in the Tri-Council Agencies. These three agencies: the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), are responsible for distributing research funding to professors, students, and others conducting important research in Canada.
During CASA’s 2017 Advocacy Week and in the organization’s Pre-Budget Submission, student leaders stressed the importance of funding student-led research projects. CASA is proud to have played a strong role in securing research funding for both undergraduate and graduate students looking to gain research experience and discover something new.
