ICORD

About the program (Annual program)

ICORD’s summer research program for Indigenous youth started as a pilot in the summer of 2018 to introduce local Indigenous high school students to the exciting world of spinal cord injury (SCI) research. From one student in 2018, the program tripled in size to three students in 2019, and again to nine students in 2021. We expanded to ICORD labs at UBC-Okanagan in 2022 with 12 students joining the program. We’re excited to continue growing and meet program applicants for Summer 2023!

In partnership with UBC’s School of Biomedical Engineering, ICORD is excited to offer a summer program to provide opportunities and mentorship for Indigenous (First Nations, Inuit, M├ętis) youth interested in scientific research. High school students (currently in grades 9 to 12) are invited to do research projects with us, in the hopes that this experience might inspire you to go on in the sciences, and maybe consider further studies or a career in neuroscience or biomedical engineering.

The Actuarial Foundation of Canada

Equality of Opportunity Scholarship

In 2021, the Actuarial Foundation of Canada (AFC) established its Equality of Opportunity Fund (EOS) to promote diversity in the actuarial, mathematics & statistics, data management and computer science professions. The EOS Fund will provide scholarships to eligible Canadian students facing financial and societal barriers to attending their intended university or college program.

Annual scholarships of (approximately) $4,000 (University) and $2,000 (College) will be awarded to successful applicants for the duration of the student’s program, to a maximum of 4 years, provided that they meet the eligibility criteria of the EOS Fund, as described below:

  1. Resident Black, Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC) Canadian student.
  2. Accepted as a full-time student at a Canadian college or university.
  3. Intent on pursuing a post-secondary degree in actuarial science, mathematics, statistics, data management or computer science program.
  4. Minimum grade of 2.8 (on maximum GPA of 4) or equivalent.

Each year, the recipients of the scholarships will be chosen based on the selection criteria. To qualify each student will have had to apply or be accepted into a Canadian university program leading to a degree in one of the eligible disciplines listed above.

The EOS Fund is administered by the AFC. The AFC issues tax receipts, invests and manages all charitable donations to the fund, promotes the award among the actuarial community, and administers the annual distribution of the scholarships.
