Welcome to CIRDI’s Alumni Network!
If you are a CIRDI fellow or have participated in our Summer Institute pilot program, training workshops, seminars or conferences, we invite you to be a part of the CIRDI Alumni Network.
We are excited to bring together the global community of alumni and help you stay connected to CIRDI and fellow alumni. We hope you will be able to take advantage of the resources we will make available for you in the near future. Through this site, you will have the opportunity to learn about fellow alumni, share your stories and photos and participate in webinars and other learning events.
Scholars and Fellows Program
The Scholars and Fellows program targets a cross-section of client-country stakeholders and is designed to ensure that the program directly benefits in-country long-term capacity building and contributes to CIRDI’s centre of expertise in resource-led sustainable development. The aim is to engage fellows across a wide range of Institute activities – needs analysis, applied research, education delivery, advice and communications – while at the same time targeting a cross-section of beneficiaries from government, communities and university partners. Typical fellowships are up to $10,000 with the exact amount to be calculated based primarily on the length of the fellowship. The funds are used to cover travel and living expenses while in Canada in accordance with the Canadian National Joint Council Treasury Board Travel Directive.
