CEWIL Canada Research Grant & Submission Guide

Submission Guide


The 2019 Grant is sponsored by: Centre for the Advancement of Co-operative Education University of Waterloo (WatCACE)

Co-operative Education and Work-Integrated Learning Canada (CEWIL) seeks to foster research activity that will advance and enhance co-operative education and work-integrated learning across Canada. Research will strengthen the development of these programs as a learning model, stimulate professional discourse, and help build bridges between practitioners and the academic research community. As part of this mandate CEWIL, formerly CAFCE, established the grant in 2006. By establishing this grant, CEWIL is better able to:

  • Identify, promote, and support co-operative education and work-integrated learning research activity
  • Connect practitioners' needs to potential research opportunities
  • Link co-operative education and work-integrated learning researchers across Canada and globally
  • Mentor those conducting co-op and WIL research projects and inspire others to consider such projects

CEWIL Canada Research Grant

The CEWIL Research Grant (value: $5000 CDN) was established in 2006 to promote research that helps to strengthen the development of co-operative education and work-integrated learning across Canada. The field of co-operative education and work-integrated learning benefits from research that provides a deeper understanding of what engages, encourages, and enriches students, faculty, employers, and staff, as well as studies which analyze various co-op and WIL practices and their outcomes. The grant is available to all co-op and WIL practitioners and researchers.
