Capacity Building

Young Insight Scholar Initiative

The Young Insight Scholar Initiative is a mentored fellowship program to build research/scholarly opportunities and career pathways for under-represented and equity seeking groups. We partner with academic and community agency partners to create these fellowships.

The Young Insight Scholar (YIS) is for young and emerging scholars/advocates (less than 30 years old) who are passionate about mobilizing evidence to advance equity. YIS fellowships are open to immigrants and those that are Canadian-born.

Along with a stipend, Young Insights Scholars receive mentored supervision and support from sector leaders and researchers, and professional development, networking opportunities and career transition support as part of the fellowship.
