Research Council Emerging Scholar

Award Information

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 college/university teaching, research, and leadership/service. 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.

Award Guidelines

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 Doctoral award after having been a previous recipient of a Master’s award.
