The Northern Scientific Training Program funds undergraduate and graduate thesis research in the natural, physical and social sciences and humanities.
In 1961, the federal government established the Northern Scientific Training Grants Program to encourage Canadian universities to train northern specialists to meet national needs. Today, it is the Northern Scientific Training Program (NSTP) and provides supplementary funding to over 300 students annually at over 35 universities across Canada. The program is administered by POLAR as part of its mandate to foster science and technology in Canada’s North.

These include the Conference Support Fund, Thesis Support Fund, and Skills Development Fund. Applicants are eligible for funding from only one of these funds per year. Average funding is $100 per applicant and varies depending on the number of applicants.
Conference Support Fund
This fund is for students presenting at a conference. This fund is not for students who are only attending conferences and it is not meant to be a primary source of funding for conferences.
Thesis Support Fund
This fund is designed to help defray the costs involved in producing theses or major papers. Expenses covered under this fund include the costs of supplies, materials, and services expended on the project. Purchases of reusable/resaleable items such as computers, books, and journals will not be covered.
Skills Development Support
This fund supports projects that help students develop skills in relation to their programme of study. It is intended for practical, skills-based training programs not offered at York.
