Student Researchers

LERRN also has funding to finance collaborative research placements, undertaken by a graduate student from one of our partner Canadian universities (Carleton University, McGill University, University of Ottawa and York University) and a student selected by our Geographic Working Groups in Jordan, Kenya, Lebanon and Tanzania. This research is an integral part of our combined effort to understand and enhance the role of civil society in responding to the needs of refugees in the Global South.
