The verb provide has two different subcategorisation frames:

provide something < to somebody>provide somebody with something

In the first, the material provided is the object, in the second the recipient is the object.

Both are valid, and both are in common use. The difference between them is the with phrase, which must be there lớn get meaning 2: if there is only one (direct) object, then meaning 1 is the relevant one (the to phrase is optional).

The stranding you are doing can be grammatical, but because you are using with, it is grammatical only if the recipient is explicit as the direct object

With is a preposition. If we want to lớn say, "provided with," we have to lớn have sầu something that the "with" modifies. We could revise this sentence lớn say,

We add the information the study provides us with to our article.

In your original sentence, the prepositional phrase "with information" didn"t modify any words. In this new sentence, "with information" modifies "us."

You could also use the second sentence, which is equally correct.
