Research Funding

EMRG students have received funding from many sources.

These include external scholarships, university fellowships, university teaching assistantships, research work for CIEEDAC, co-operative placements, direct funding from EMRG, and specific grants and consulting contracts from those organizations interested in the student's research project. A survey of EMRG graduates revealed that they are well funded relative to students in comparable programs, with more of the support awarded for students' direct research work as opposed to teaching assistantships, which tend to hinder students from advancing their training and research. Organizations that have funded research projects by EMRG students include:
  • B.C. Ministry of Employment and Investment
  • B.C. Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources
  • B.C. Gas
  • Westcoast Energy
  • Centra Gas
  • Natural Resources Canada, Office of Energy Efficiency
  • Environment Canada
  • Canadian Industry Program for Energy Conservation
  • Saskatchewan Energy Conservation and Development Authority
  • B.C. Hydro
  • B.C. Ministry of Environment, Lands and Parks
  • Greater Vancouver Regional District
  • Yukon Territorial Government
  • Pembina Institute
