Teck Serv Student Research Opportunity available for 2018
A partnership between Teck Trail Operations and Selkirk College has created an annual fund to provide support for Selkirk College students to undertake a community-based research project in the West Kootenay Boundary Region. Building on the program’s success in recent years, we are happy to announce the Teck Serv Student Research Internship opportunity in 2018.
Community-based service organizations involved in rural development are eligible to apply for the Teck Serv Student Research Internship. Applications may be submitted either individually or in partnership by completing the Teck Serv Funding Application form. The deadline to apply is 4 p.m. on March 29, 2018.
Up to $10,000 in student internship funding is available to conduct an applied research project that will support rural development at the community or regional level. Applied research involves the use of new or existing knowledge to solve real-world challenges or questions. This internship aims to:
- Provide students the opportunity to engage in applied research and service learning designed to build confidence, capabilities and capacity while attaining valuable work experience
- Benefit community organizations by providing the expertise of Selkirk College students to help inform and advance strategic goals
- Bring real benefits to the region while enriching Selkirk College students’ educational and professional development experiences
