Recommended Posts

The rare Charitable Research Reserve is a 900+ acre property in Waterloo Region,
Ontario at the confluence of the Grand and the Speed Rivers. The goal of rare is to
protect this environmentally sensitive landscape intact, in perpetuity, and to
promote the use of the property for education and research. The property includes a
broad range of habitats including riparian zones, upland and lowland deciduous forest
(old-growth and second-growth), savanna, cliffs, coldwater streams, deciduous swamps,
marshes, hedgerows, agricultural fields and old fields.

The Ages Foundation Fellowship scholarship program is valued at $4,000 and is open to
all Canadian and International graduate students who will conduct field research on
rare property between May 2016 and April 2017. The monetary award will help ensure
successful candidates have the necessary resources to conduct and report on their
research at rare. It will also allow the student to give an oral presentation at a
conference in their discipline.

Applications Details:
Applications can be submitted until 5:00 pm on Wednesday, April 20th, 2016
Students will be required to provide a final report to rare one year after receiving
the scholarship.
The successful applicant will be notified by May 13th, 2016. A sum of $3,500 will be
awarded shortly thereafter while the remaining $500 will be awarded in May 2017, upon
successful completion of the requirements of the scholarship (including the final
report and conference presentation).
The recipient will retain all intellectual property rights.
The research will be required to go through the normal rare Research Application
approval process.
