14th Annual
National Gathering Of Graduate Students

July 12-14, 2014
Simon Fraser University, Burnaby, BC

The 2014 National Gathering of Graduate Students is hosted by the SFU Office for Aboriginal Peoples, and co-sponsored by the CIHR Institute for Aboriginal People’s Health, Kloshe Tillicum NEAHR, and CAHR UVic.


Kloshe Tillicum is no longer able to offer Student, Community or Travel Grants

January 2013 - After 12 years, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research - Institute of Aboriginal Peoples Health has discontinued funding for the Network Environments of Aboriginal Health Research.  As a result, we are unable to provide any funding for undergraduate and graduate scholarships, community grants or travel bursaries.  We have been fortunate to support a great number of emerging health researchers and community projects in the past years and congratulate all of our recipients on their commitment to Aboriginal health research.


Academics say cuts to Aboriginal organizations are hurting crucial research projects

WINNIPEG, Nov. 22, 2012 /CNW/ - Over 100 eminent academics have signed a letter to Aboriginal and Northern Affairs Minister John Duncan demanding that core funding for Aboriginal organizations be restored to protect vital research projects underway.

The signatories highlight that researchers partner with tribal councils, the National Aboriginal Health Organization, and other Aboriginal representative organizations to address "health, education and infrastructure issues that are preventing Canadian First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities from reaching their full potential."

Kloshe Tillicum's Dr. Rod McCormick participated as one of the signatories.
