The Research Inspired Student Enrichment (RISE) Awards provide top Newfoundland and Labrador high school students with the opportunity to attend research-related enrichment programs focused on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Through these awards, RDC recognizes the need for early development of the talent required by R&D stakeholders and the importance of R&D to innovation and economic growth.

The main objective of the RISE Awards is to expose top Newfoundland and Labrador high school students to research activities at an early stage in their education. By exposing them to research, a secondary goal of the program is to encourage top Newfoundland and Labrador high school students to pursue research related education and career paths in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

The 2017 RISE competition is now closed.
