Funding Opportunities

2022 ARC-NL Graduate Fellowships Competition

The Aging Research Centre-Newfoundland and Labrador (ARC-NL) of Memorial University will provide FOUR Graduate Fellowships in 2022 for master’s and PhD students pursuing aging related research.

The fellowships will be valued at $6,000 a year, for one or two years depending on the program of study, in addition to any baseline funding for which the student is eligible.

For the 2022 Graduate Fellowships, ARC-NL has changed the application process. We are asking faculty members to submit an Expression of Interest to outline their willingness to supervise a graduate student on research that is focused on aging. We hope these awards will help encourage faculty with an interest but not necessarily the funding to support/supervise graduate students interested in aging issues accept those students.

The ARC-NL fellowships will be provided in three categories:

ARC-NL/School of Graduate Studies
ARC-NL is partnering with the School of Graduate Studies (SGS) to provide ONE fellowship to a student currently enrolled in or starting a research-based graduate (masters or doctoral level) degree program in September 2022 across any discipline at Memorial University, provided the student is eligible to receive base-line funding from SGS. 

ARC-NL/Research and Graduate Studies, Grenfell Campus
ARC-NL and the Office of Research and Graduate Studies, Grenfell Campus, will provide ONE fellowship to a student of a graduate degree program of Grenfell Campus whose research is focus on the topic of aging.

Students eligible for the fellowship will be currently enrolled in or will start in September 2022 one of the following graduate programs at Grenfell:
  • Master of Fine Arts in Visual Arts
  • Master of Science in Applied Geomatics (AGEO)
  • Master of Arts in Environmental Policy (MAEP)
  • Master of Science in Boreal Ecosystems and Agriculture Sciences (BEAS)
  • Master of Arts in Applied Literary Arts
  • PhD in Boreal Ecosystem and Agriculture Sciences (BEAS)
  • PhD in Transdisciplinary Sustainability (TRSU)

ARC-NL/NLCAHR Graduate Fellowship
ARC-NL and the Newfoundland and Labrador Centre for Applied Health Research (NLCAHR) are partnering to offer TWO-YEAR fellowships to TWO students starting the Master’s of Applied Health Services (MAHSR) for the September 2022 intake.

The MAHSR is entirely offered via distance and as such the student could be based at any location in the province. For information regarding the MASHR visit here.


To submit an Expression of Interest, faculty:
  • Must be a faculty member at Memorial who is able and willing to supervise a graduate student eligible to hold the award
  • Must be able to identify a current student whose research is focused on aging or recruit a student into an eligible program for a September 2022 start as per the different fellowship categories
  • Must be a member of ARC-NL (apply to become a member)

To be eligible for a fellowship a student must:
  • Be currently enrolled in or accepted to a graduate program at Memorial (as noted above) with a start date of September 2022
  • Be pursuing a research-based master's or doctoral degree at Memorial University in one of the programs targeted by the fellowship
  • Have selected or been assigned a research topic that is relevant to aging, broadly defined to include a wide range of disciplines, approaches and topics
  • Be eligible for baseline funding from SGS for the SGS and Grenfell awards and RGS for the NLCAHR award.
  • Be a Student Member of ARC-NL (apply to become a member)
  • Have an academic supervisor who is a Research Member of ARC-NL (apply to become a member)

Important Dates

  • Deadline for Expression of Interest: February 15, 2022
  • Announcement of awards: March 2022
  • Beginning of funding: September 2022

To Apply

Faculty members must submit an Expression of Interest to demonstrate their willingness to supervise graduate student research that is relevant to aging, with a particular focus on community-based research projects, based in Newfoundland and Labrador and consistent with the broad mandate of ARC-NL.  To find out more about ARC-NL, please visit here.

The Expression of Interest should provide a broad description of the project, the role of the graduate student and the potential impact of the study in terms of closing knowledge gaps and contributing to the health and well-being of the aging population in Newfoundland and Labrador.  EOIs should be one page maximum and should identify which fellowship category is relevant as well as any additional sources of funding supervisors have to offer students. At the time of the EOI submission, the faculty member does not have to identify the prospective student.

EOIs for the ARC-NL/SGS and the ARC-NL/RGS Grenfell Campus can be sent to arcnl@grenfell.mun.ca.
EOIs for the ARC-NL/NLCAHR can be sent to raudas@mun.ca.

Selection Criteria

  • Relevance of the proposed research topic to aging with priority given to research relevant to aging in Newfoundland and Labrador
  • Quality of the project description in the Expression of Interest

Upon completion of the award, recipients must submit an End of Award Report to arcnl@grenfell.mun.ca.
