Niagara Health Knowledge Institute/Niagara College Summer Student Research Scholarship

The purpose of the Niagara Health Knowledge Institute (NHKI) is to improve patient care and experience by embedding research into clinical practice. The vision is to transform health care through leading community hospital-based research in Canada. Our values are equity, collaboration, continuous learning, innovation and empowerment.  

Niagara Health (NH) places great value on teaching, learning, research, innovation and partnerships. As such, NH provides opportunities for learners to participate in scientific exchange, collaboration and learning in a research environment. To facilitate early engagement of future research team members in Niagara, the NHKI has partnered with local post-secondary institutions to establish the summer student research scholarships worth $10,000 each.

These awards fund university and college students to participate in a research-focused placement with the NHKI for a period of 12 weeks between May and August. The goal is to support the retention of high-potential students within the Niagara region, contributing to the overall growth of the NHKI and providing students with valuable research skills, exposure to a research environment and new networks within a community hospital research setting.  

Applications for the 2024 Summer Student Research Scholarships are now open. Applications are due Thursday, March 28.
