Five University of Saskatchewan researchers have been awarded a total of almost $480,000 to lead five new Aboriginal research projects.


The money is coming from the federal Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council.


The projects deal with areas like literacy, urban identity and the teaching of life skills to children and youth with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder.


U of S research council coordinator Peter Stoicheff says the grants demonstrate the university’s strength in Aboriginal research.


U of S vice-president of research Steven Franklin says it is the university’s long-term goal to play a leading role in Aboriginal education and scholarship.
