Understanding Indigenous Graduate Students and Their Motivations to Pursue a Career in Research

The research project that will be conducted by the intern will enable the creation of a questionnaire that will later be deployed to the indigenous researcher (and graduate student) community. Most of the activities will involve gathering and analysis information from databases (i.e., Aboriginal People’s Survey) and interviews (and focus groups) to ensure that we are asking the right questions. The aim is to better understand the enablers and constraints facing indigenous researchers in Canada, in order to help design interventions that could boost the former and mitigate the latter. The intern will work closely with both the academic and partner mentors to complete the work.
