Research Nova Scotia student challenges are designed to inspire student researchers with exceptional potential who are engaged in various research disciplines at post-secondary institutions across Nova Scotia. By starting with what we want to accomplish, and convening a coalition of collaborators, we strive to demonstrate what we mean by “doing research differently” while helping address provincial challenges.

In the Fall of 2021, Research Nova Scotia launched two student research challenges that asked the following questions:

1. How can we economically re-use glass?
2. How can we better connect researchers to community?

Congratulations to all of our 2021-22 student challenge award recipients. Research Nova Scotia would like to congratulate all student participants, faculty advisors, judges, and challenge partners. Our students continue to demonstrate the up-and-coming research talent our province has to offer!

Stay tuned for new student funding opportunities coming Fall 2022.
