Exceptional Students Receive Tri-Council Funding

The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) support and promote high-quality research in a wide variety of disciplines and areas. Together, they make up the Tri-Council funding agencies, the primary mechanism through which the Government of Canada supports research and training at post-secondary institutions.

In 2020, seven School of Health and Exercise students were awarded funding to pursue their research at UBC Okanagan.
