There are a number of grants available for students who are interested in doing original research. We encurage students to apply to these grants and present their research at the Annual Research & Knowledge Mobilization Day @ Kwantlen. The Student Led Research Grants initiative allows students the opportunity to apply their research skills to public policy issues. The Office of the Chief Information Officer (OCIO), Ministry of Labour and Citizens' Services has provided one time funding grants to post secondary institutions in British Columbia to support student led research of benefit to a number of Ministries.

This initiative provides a great opportunity to conduct research on key social issues and to enrich our learning environment. Research supported by this initiative must address one or more of a number of policy issues identified by funder. For information on the policy issues students may address, please click here.

Students may submit their applications online here
