BURSARIES

Bursary funding is a notable part of OPIRG Carleton’s programming and work within our community and currently come in three forms: our research bursaries, our access bursary, and our name change bursary.

Research Bursaries

OPIRG-Carleton offers four research bursaries every year for Carleton University undergraduate and graduate students (descriptions below), with a focus on social and environmental justice in their research or project. Bursary applications for 2016-17 are now available. This year we are splitting up the deadlines for each semester. The Undergraduate and Graduate (Terry Cottam Research) student bursaries were offered in the Fall semester, and the International and Indigenous student bursaries will be offered in the Winter semester (Due March 17 @ 3:30pm).
