RISE Awards

Have you heard about the Research & Development Corporation (RDC) RISE Awards? It’s an award program that offers high school students an opportunity of a lifetime.

RDC recognizes there are incredibly talented and intelligent high school students across Newfoundland and Labrador and we want to encourage these students to pursue research-related education and career paths in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The RISE program exposes award recipients to research activities at an early stage in their education and provide them with an opportunity to attend one of three research-related enrichment programs in Canada and the United States.

How does it work?

Students must complete an application by November 3, 2016 and meet the academic qualifications. A maximum of 15 awards will be given under this program.

Academic Qualification Requirements:

  • Must be a current Level II student with:
  • Minimum 90% average across all courses completed in Level I
  • Minimum 90% average across all science courses completed in Level I
  • Minimum 90% average across all mathematics courses completed in Level I
  • Minimum of 8 credits in science and mathematics courses completed by the end of Level II
  • Additional requirement for RSI:  Minimum of 12 credits in science and mathematics

RISE Award winners will attend one of three prestigious research-inspired enrichment programs during the summer of 2017: the Research Science Institute (RSI) based at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), the Da Vinci Engineering Enrichment Program (DEEP) at the University of Toronto, and the Boston Leadership Institute in Wellesley, Massachusetts.
