Applications for 2016-2017 Faculty of Medicine OSOTF and Other Endowed Awards OPEN

Completed online applications are to be submitted by 4:00 pm, Monday, May 2, 2016.

The awards program provides financial support for registered graduate students (primarily thesis-based M.Sc. and Ph.D.) in the Faculty of Medicine. These funds contribute towards the annual minimum funding commitment for doctoral-stream students.

See Competition Details or complete information on guidelines and eligibility and review the Awards section for a complete list of awards and its specific conditions.  Of special note is the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute Student Scholarship Fund, which aims to further the development of the patient care, teaching and research missions and goals of the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute (Toronto Rehab). This is an excellent opportunity for qualified doctoral stream (MSc/PhD) thesis degree program students in financial need enrolled at the University of Toronto, who are in research training either at Toronto Rehab or at another suitable institution, and whose studies will further the strategic directions of Toronto Rehab. Applications involving research with child subjects will not be considered.
