Pathway to Graduate Studies (P2GS)

Graduate Studies


May 4 - 29, 2020

The Pathway to Graduate Studies (P2GS) program is returning in 2020 to offer research opportunities for Indigenous students in STEM at UWinnipeg. P2GS is open to Indigenous students who have declared a major in a natural science and engineering field and have a minimum of 15 credit hours completed as of April 2020. There is no minimum GPA requirement, what is most important is an interest in science and learning about science-based research. Throughout the 4-week program, running from May 4 – 29, 2020, students will engage in science education during the morning and participate in a paid research program under the supervision of a UWinnipeg faculty member during the afternoon. Accommodation in university housing (McFeetors Hall) is available during the duration of the program.

This program is free of charge for both faculty and students and does not require students to connect with researchers in advance of the application deadline.  We are asking faculty members who are interested in potentially hosting a student from this program to forward a short paragraph on your research program which will be posted on the UWinnipeg P2GS webpage. Students will be asked to identify the top programs they are interested in with their application package. We are asking that faculty submit their research paragraphs to Dylan Armitage at d.armitage@uwinnipeg.ca by December 16th, 2019.

The intent of this program is to support Indigenous students in NSE fields, introduce students to research opportunities, and encourage students to continue with their undergraduate programs and eventually into graduate programs. We do our best to find every applicant a research spot in P2GS. In our first year (2019) all students who applied were given placements.
