The purpose of the Northern Scientific Training Program (NSTP) is to support Canadian universities in providing training that gives advanced and graduate students the opportunity to gain professional experience in the Canadian North and encourages them to develop a commitment to northern work. The Program objective is to increase the number of graduate and other advanced students within Canadian universities who have specialized in some aspects of northern studies and who have northern research experience.

The UVic Northern Studies Committee has established an internal application deadline of November 1, 2009, to ensure there is sufficient time to compile the applications and forward them to Ottawa.)
