Research funding through Arts & Science international programs:

  • The Research Excursions Program (REP 398H/Y Courses) is designed to provide small groups of students completing their second or third year the opportunity to contribute to faculty research in an off-campus setting, in Canada or abroad. These group projects are based on experiential learning and take place under the continuous supervision of an Arts & Science faculty member.
  • The Dean’s International/Indigenous Initiatives Fund (DIIF), Formerly: Dean’s Fund for International and Indigenous Initiatives (DFIII), supports the development of new and creative international activities in areas of need not already addressed by existing programming. The goal of the DIIF is to leverage Faculty resources to provide a broad range of international and Indigenous opportunities for Arts & Science students.

  • Joint research activities
  • Participation in, and co-hosting symposia, workshops, seminars and conferences
