Toronto (Nov. 13, 2005) - The Toronto Rehabilitation Institute is pleased to announce a new scholarship in rehabilitation-related research for graduate students with disabilities. The scholarship is supported by TD Bank Financial Group.
"Research is an investment in the future - and so are scholarships," says Dr. Geoff Fernie, Vice President, Research, at Toronto Rehab. "We believe this exciting new scholarship will open doors to careers in rehabilitation research for top graduate students.
"This scholarship will also enrich rehabilitation-related research. As researchers, we embrace the concept of consumer participation. We believe that people with disabilities should be active participants in planning and conducting research."
Toronto Rehab is extremely grateful for the generosity of TD Bank Financial Group, which has pledged $300,000 over three years for the TD Bank Financial Group Scholarship in Rehabilitation-Related Research for Graduate Students with Disabilities.
The funding will provide scholarships of $20,000, plus an individual supplement to help meet special disability-related costs of attending graduate school. The first scholarships will cover the period of September 2006 to April 2007, renewable for an additional year. The application deadline is May 1, 2006.
Scholarships will be awarded to full or part-time students in good standing to support their education and training. Applicants must have a disability. Candidates must plan to be enrolled in a graduate program leading to a master's or doctoral degree at the University of Toronto. Fields of study must relate to rehabilitation but are not limited to any particular discipline. For example, they may include but are not limited to rehabilitation sciences, health administration and engineering.
For an application form and more information, please contact Lois Ward.
