Student Research Assistantships (SRA)

Student Research Assistantships are derived from departmentally administered funds and are designed to provide graduate students with research experience and faculty with research support during any regular session of The University of Manitoba.

Eligibility Criteria

All students in the first two (2) years of their MA program and the first three (3) years of their PhD program are eligible for SRA assignments.

Preference will be given to students who have completed the first year of their program.

MA or PhD students will be selected for assignments based upon following criteria:

  1. The match between student research skills and those requested in Faculty applications for assistance.
  2. Priority will be given to students who do not hold Major Awards.
  3. Priority will be given to students who have completed, or have completed the majority of, required course work.

Information for New Applicants to Our Degree Programs
Incoming graduate students will not normally be assigned as SRAs. In such cases, incoming students are not required to formally apply for an SRA appointment and will be assessed based upon their application materials, consultation with faculty, and on that year’s AGSA decisions.

Information for Continuing Graduate Anthropology Students
MA students in year 2 of their program and PhD students in year 2 or year 3 must submit a Student Research Assistantship Application Form by the deadline date in order to be considered.

Value: TBD, depending on availability of funds by department
