CPRC Scholarship Program

The CPRC offers a Postgraduate Scholarship Supplement. The Supplement is $5,000 per year. To be eligible, a student must be studying (or planning to study) some aspect of poultry science and must also hold a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) scholarship at the Masters or Doctoral level. Details of the program including eligibility criteria and application procedures can be found on the NSERC website.

In order to attract students from a wider pool, CPRC will now also accept applications from non-NSERC scholars. Applications to the CPRC Postgraduate Scholarship, also set at $5,000 per year, will be assessed using the same criteria as the Supplement above, but applicants will not be required to hold a NSERC scholarship. To be considered for the scholarship, please submit the following to CPRC:

  • a completed CPRC Postgraduate Scholarship application form;
  • up to date academic transcripts (these may follow your application by mail if necessary);
  • a two-page résumé describing your career goals and academic and extracurricular activities that support your interests in poultry research; and
  • a statement of endorsement from your research supervisor describing why you are particularly suitable for this award
  • Outline of Proposed Research (see application form)
  • Contributions and Statements (see application form)

Only one Scholarship or Supplement will be awarded each year.

The deadline for submitting applications for the 2021 Scholarship or Supplement is November 26th. Email completed applications to info@cp-rc.ca.
