Indigenous and Black Engineering and Technology Momentum Fellowship
The Indigenous and Black Engineering and Technology Momentum Fellowship is the flagship fellowship for the IBET PhD Project.
This prestigious Fellowship will provide financial support of $30,000 per year for 4 years for University of Waterloo recipients. This funding support ($25,000 from faculty and $5,000 from faculty supervisor) will allow the recipient(s) to pursue advanced degrees and undertake both traditional and/or non-traditional areas of research without incurring financial hardship.
The IBET Momentum Fellowship is intended to support Indigenous peoples (First Nations, Inuit and Metis) and Black researchers in achieving their rightful place and respected inclusion in academia at the University of Waterloo.
This Fellowship is intended to help build and support an equitable environment that is reflective of Canada’s population and reconcile the under-representation of Indigenous and Black scholars at the University of Waterloo. An integral component of the IBET Momentum Fellowship will be access to mentorship and community-wide support.
