The ideal student for the CARe RTP

This program has been designed for a student/trainee who is currently registered in a graduate program in Canada or has completed a graduate program in Canada in an area relevant to child maltreatment and/or child welfare. The student/trainee should have a good knowledge of quantitative, qualitative, or mixed research methods. The student/trainee should also ensure they have the time required to participate fully and complete the program requirements.

Equity, Access, and Participation considerations for admissions

We will use equity principles in the selection of the students/trainees with the aim of having a diverse group of students/trainees. We will hope to have students/trainees from geographically diverse programs across Canada. Priority will be given to Indigenous students/trainees.

The Admissions Process

To be considered for admission to the CARe RTP, students/trainees must first complete and submit the admissions form. Information requested includes: name, preferred pronouns (optional), name of current and/or complete academic programs including type of degree and primary discipline, province or territory of residence, titles and final grades of research methods and statistics course completed, software programs that you have experience using, why you are interested in the CARe RTP, a brief description of future career goals, what areas of research are you interested in, and if currently in an academic program, confirmation that your current advisor gives you permission to participate in this training (required).

The CARe RTP admissions team will review all applications and make the selection based on Equity, Access and Participation principles. All applicants will be contacted with the results of their application. The 2024 cohort will only be able to accommodate approximately 12-20 students/trainees. The application process for Cohort 2 is now open. Once a Letter of Acceptance is provided to the student/trainee there will be a two-week period to accept the position along with confirmation that the student/trainee will be able to attend the 1.5 day in-person workshop in Winnipeg on September 25-27, 2024.
