In order to encourage and support Indigenous research initiatives at Laurentian, to strengthen capacity for Indigenous research in Northern Ontario, to create and reinforce collaborative networks of Indigenous research regionally and nationally, and to respond to the calls for action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, Laurentian University has established the Advancing Indigenous Research (AIR) Fund.  The objectives of AIR Fund are therefore:

  • To encourage collaboration and relationships important to Indigenous research
  • To enhance capacity for Indigenous research
  • To provide opportunities for the research community and researchers to identify research questions that matter the most to Indigenous peoples
  • To enable the Laurentian research community to have increased success in external research funding for Indigenous research
  • To Apply
