Call for Applications: Knowledge Translation & Exchange Student Fellowships

Mar 7, 2014

The Ontario Problem Gambling Research Centre is offering student fellowship opportunities to develop and implement a knowledge translation and exchange (KTE) strategy related to problem gambling research.

The Ontario Problem Gambling Research Centre (OPGRC) has recently transitioned to a comprehensive knowledge translation and exchange (KTE) organization in order to promote the use of evidence-based knowledge into responsible gambling policy and practice. OPGRC aims to build capacity for KTE by working with graduate student researchers in the problem gambling field. OPGRC is offering student fellowship opportunities for students to develop and implement a KTE strategy related to problem gambling research. Students will develop their own capacity for KTE by gaining an integrated KTE learning experience through consultation with the OPGRC Knowledge Broker to plan the strategy, design appropriate tools, and work with stakeholders to exchange valuable messages of the research as well as participating in KTE workshops. Students will also develop project management and communication skills along with an in-depth understanding of the problem gambling field.

Value and Duration
The Student Fellowships have a value of $8,000 per academic year. Fellowships may be renewed annually for a maximum of two years for a Masters degree and three years for a Doctorate. In addition recipients are eligible for funding to support capacity development including conference participation.

Who is Eligible
Graduate students with a strong interest in problem gambling are encouraged to apply. Eligible students must be registered in a Masters or Doctoral program within an Ontario institution, be supported by a graduate faculty advisor, and must be in good standing with the institution. Students must be embarking on or engaged in research related to reducing harm from gambling. KTE can be incorporated at all stages of the research process, therefore students may apply for the studentship prior to research being conducted, while research is being conducted, or when the research has been completed; in all cases there must be a strong KTE focus of involvement.

How to Apply
Applications should be submitted by email no later than Friday, March 7, 2014 at 3:00 p.m. Applicants should complete and submit their application in a word document or as a pdf and emailed to fyona@opgrc.org. A confirmation email from OPGRC will be sent once the application has been received. If a confirmation notice has not been received within 2 business days of the submission, please email or call Fyona at OPGRC to confirm receipt at (519)-763-8049 ext. 105.
