The Physical & Health Education Canada Research Council (Research Council) Emerging Scholar Award recognizes graduate students’ commitment to the Research Council, as evidenced through experiences and potential in scholarly teaching, research, and leadership. It serves as an opportunity to acknowledge the potential of individual student members as future scholars and promoters of physical and health education within Canada.
Normally, one award will be presented to a Masters student and one award will be presented to a Doctoral student each time a PHE Canada Research Council Forum is hosted. It is intended that an award winner will not have been a previous recipient of the Research Council Emerging Scholar Award. However, in exceptional circumstances, applicants may be considered for a PhD award after having been a previous recipient of a Master’s award. All applicants must have a successful presentation for the Research Council Forum to be a candidate for this award.
