USask Supports Ukraine

News about these shocking events and their potential implications for world peace is troubling for all of us, and particularly for our many Ukrainian and Russian university members.

CGPS is committed to expeditious facilitation of applications to programs, visiting research students or as postdoctoral scholars on behalf of our faculty who are considering hosting a displaced research trainee. For application support, please contact CGPS by emailing regarding graduate students and regarding postdoctoral fellows. 

A statement from the presidents of Canada’s federal research granting agencies to support Ukrainian research trainees - This temporary fund will allow all active and eligible grant-holders across the three agencies, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) to apply for a supplement that will provide one-year relief and assistance to trainees (i.e., individuals eligible for master’s, doctoral or postdoctoral support) whose research in Ukraine has been interrupted. Further details of the fund will be released in the coming weeks on the respective agency's websites.
