Call for TMC Network Research Scholarship 2024-25

The Transforming Military Cultures (TMC) Network will offer $3,000 to up to two students at Canadian universities who are conducting research on topics related to military culture change. In particular, we are interested in research that challenges, reimagines, and seeks to transform the Canadian Armed Forces culture into one that embraces inclusivity and difference. Research could include, but is not limited to, projects that examine the root causes of the military’s problematic culture or that provide practical insights into transforming Canadian Armed Forces culture. Scholarship recipients will be invited and funded to attend our annual symposium which will be held at Mount Saint Vincent University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, on September 27-29, 2024.

Who can apply:

  • Undergraduate or graduate students at Canadian universities;
  • Full-time and part-time students.

Please note that members employed by, or institutions funded by, the federal government (e.g., CAF and/or DND, Royal Military College) are not eligible for DND MINDS funding, including this scholarship, with the exception of Class A reservists.

Application requirements:

  • A cover letter explaining the applicant’s interest and research related to military culture change;
  • A copy of a current university transcript;
  • The names and contact information of two people who can be asked to provide letters of recommendation.

Application deadline:

  • May 31, 2024

Applications will be assessed based on research content, merit, and equity, diversity, and inclusion criteria. Each application will be evaluated according to the student’s level of education, with separate competition streams for students at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Previous scholarship recipients are welcome to apply; however, priority will be given to applicants who have not previously received a TMC Network research scholarship. Please send applications and questions to Candidates will be contacted with the results within one month of the scholarship deadline.
