Research Council Emerging Scholar Award

Award Information

The Physical & Health Education Canada Research Council Emerging Scholar Award recognizes graduate students’ commitment to the Research Council, as evidenced through experiences and potential in scholarly teaching, research, and leadership. It serves as an opportunity to acknowledge the potential of individual student members as future scholars and promoters of physical and health education within Canada.

Award Guidelines

Common practice will be to award one Master’s student and one Doctoral student an Emerging Scholar Award each time a Research Council Forum is hosted. It is intended that an award winner will not have been a previous recipient of the Research Council Emerging Scholar Award. However, in exceptional circumstances, applicants may be considered for a PhD award after having been a previous recipient of a Master’s award.
