2020 BHCRI Summer Studentship Award Competition
 
We are very pleased to announce the 2020 summer studentship competition with up to 6 awards offered in the amount of $5000 each for a 14-week term during the summer of 2020.
 
The following awards are available:
  • Jeremy Ingham Cancer Research Studentship - We are extremely grateful to Jeremy Ingham whose generous donation has created the Jeremy Ingham Cancer Research Trust through the IWK Foundation. The Jeremy Ingham Cancer Research Studentship award will support a top-ranked candidate with plans to pursue a career in cancer research. Applications for research into pediatric cancers are encouraged. Jeremy’s generosity will allow this new award to be offered annually. 
  • Breast Cancer Research – through a generous gift to the Dalhousie Medical Research Foundation, BHCRI will provide two summer studentships in breast cancer.  This gift was made to recognize the care and treatment provided by two outstanding surgeons at the QEII Health Sciences Centre, Dr. Lucy Helyer and Dr. Jason Williams.  Thank you to this team of surgeons and their staff and to the donor who made this funding possible.
  • Canadian Cancer Society Carol Ann Cole Comfort Heart Studentship for breast cancer research – made available through the support of the Canadian Cancer Society Nova Scotia.  
  • GIVETOLIVE – two studentships are available to support any area of cancer research.
This competition is open to applicants at recognized institutions across Atlantic Canada. Supervisors must be a Scientist, Senior Scientist, Associate Member or Honorary Member (qualifying as a Scientist, Senior Scientist or Associate Member) of the Institute.
 
The Studentship Award competition is now closed. Thank you to all those who applied. The next competition will be announced in December 2020.
