ICAN-WISE is the Integrated Collaborative Academic Network for Women in Science and Engineering.

The ICAN-WISE Scholarship began in the Prairie region of Canada in 2014 in order to help female undergraduate students develop mentoring relationships with women STEM academics.

Each year, students are invited to select a mentor of their choice and apply for this scholarship worth $6,000 to embark on a summer of natural sciences research.


Student Experiences

The ICAN-WISE Scholarship recipients were asked to document their experiences through a photo blog. Read about some of the work from these past participants here.
