Awarded for research leading to a thesis on a subject relating to northern geography.
The James Bourque Northern Doctoral Scholarship (up to $6,000), is awarded annually by The Royal Canadian Geographical Society. It is for students enrolled in a Doctoral program at a Canadian university. The scholarship will be awarded for research leading to a thesis on a subject relating to northern geography.
Applicants must be Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada. Students must be registered in a Doctoral program with a thesis requirement at a Canadian university, and must propose a research topic that addresses some substantive element of northern geography of Canada. Any Doctoral program that allows for such a focus is acceptable. The Scholarship will normally be awarded to a student (full-time or part-time) whose course work will be completed by the May following the application deadline.
The deadline for receipt of applications is February 14.
The 2021 competition is now complete. Please check back in September for application information for 2022!
