What is the OPIRG Community Research Project?

The OPIRG Community Research Project serves to assist students and community groups wishing to conduct research related to social, economic, and environmental justice. This program will not only fund research but will also provide mentoring before, during, and after, offering support in areas such as writing research proposals, acquiring research skills, conducting ethical research, as well as disseminating research results to the community. OPIRG-Ottawa will be accepting proposals from both students and community groups, and

  • matching students with community group proposals;
  • finding community groups for students to work with depending on their research interests/proposals; OR
  • funding community group research projects which either don’t need student researchers or which have already identified their student researcher.
