The Graduate Research Awards for Disarmament, Arms Control and Non-proliferation (GRA) programme was initiated in 2003 by Dr. Jennifer Allen Simons, President of The Simons Foundation Canada, in partnership with the International Security Research and Outreach Programme (ISROP) of the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada, now Global Affairs Canada.  The primary objective of the Awards is to enhance Canadian graduate level scholarship on non-proliferation, arms control and disarmament (NACD) issues.

We are pleased to congratulate the following 2021-2022 Graduate Research Award recipients who each received a cash award of CAD$5,000.00 from The Simons Foundation Canada as well as travel support to Ottawa to participate in a special seminar and luncheon hosted by Global Affairs Canada on November 30, 2022.
