New Money for Cape Breton University

Marcia Ostashewsk

A researcher at Cape Breton University is celebrating a major funding announcement today.

Marcia Ostashewski will receive close to half a million dollars from the Nova Scotia Research and Innovation Trust.

The money is targetted to projects that aim to improve the quality of life for Nova Scotians while building capacity for innovation.

Ostashewski is a Tier Two Canada Research Chair in Communities and Cultures, and an assistant professor of Ethnomusicology.

Wendy Bergfeldt spoke with her back in November when she was awarded the research chair.
We've invited her into our studio today to tell us about this new money.
