Upcoming

Map the System 2023

Deadline: Jan 31, 2023Map the System is a one-of-a-kind challenge (with cash prizes!) that requires students to use a systems-thinking approach to demonstrate a deep understanding of a pressing social or environmental challenge. This is not a pitch competition, but rather a discovery process for students of any discipline who have an interest in social and environmental change. This competition will run in three phases:

  • The local phase: MUN participants will be judged on their submissions. First place winner will move on to the virtual Canadian finals (and receive a $1000 cash prize)

  • Canadian finals: The winning team from MUN will compete against other Canadian universities, and a select number of Canada teams will move on to global finals

  • Global finals: Teams from all over the world will compete against one another in this competition hosted at Oxford University, UK.

Register by Jan 31, 2023 at mapthesystem.ca. For more information, contact alyssa.king@mun.ca


NOW OPEN: Funds for Building Relationships with Indigenous and Northern Communities for Collaborative, Co-created Research and Education Initiatives

Deadline: Feb 24, 2023Memorial University is pleased to announce the 2023 funding to support activities within the cooperation framework of UArctic. Memorial University, in partnership with the University of the Arctic and Yukon University, is requesting applications for its Indigenous and Northern Relationship Development Fund and Indigenous and Northern Research and Education Engagement Fund. While the Indigenous and Northern Relationship Development Fund is intended to be a catalyst for building better and deeper relationships with northern and Indigenous groups and communities, the Indigenous and Northern Research and Education Engagement Fund aims to support researchers with established relationships and partnerships in the Arctic region interested in working with Indigenous and northern knowledge holders for the co-creation of relevant research and education programs in the region. Applications must be completed and submitted through Memorial’s Public Engagement application portal by Feb. 24, 2023 and a final decision will be made by March 31, 2023. Successful projects will receive from $15,000–$40,000, depending on the fund, and can have a maximum duration of one or two years (for Development and Engagement, respectively). For more detailed information, visit online  or contact sdowner@mun.ca.
