Ten early scholars from across Canada got the chance to experience hands-on graduate-level research at McMaster thanks to an intensive research training program hosted by the McMaster Indigenous Research Institute (MIRI).
IndigiNerds, an eight-week program, helps guide Indigenous undergraduates as they prepare for graduate studies by offering mentorship, support and inspiration.
In addition to conducting research, scholars take part in workshops and Indigenous Knowledge programming — all part of the program’s wider goal to contribute to the success of Indigenous researchers.
The program, formerly known as the Indigenous Undergraduate Summer Research Scholars (IUSRS) program, is now in its ninth year.
