  • Cancer Research Training Program (CRTP) Awards

Twice each year the Beatrice Hunter Cancer Research Institute holds a funding competition as part of its Cancer Research Training Program (CRTP). The CRTP has a curriculum that provides training and funding to graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and clinical research fellows involved in cancer research training at recognized institutions in Atlantic Canada.  A limited number of traineeship awards will be offered to outstanding applicants with an interest in cancer research. Supervisors must be Scientists, Senior Scientists or Associate Members of BHCRI to apply.

Funding for these awards has been made available from a variety of sources; however, significant support is received from The Terry Fox Research Institute (TFRI) and the Dalhousie Medical Research Foundation (DMRF). The New Brunswick Health Research Foundation (NBHRF) has partnered with BHCRI to support New Brunswick cancer researchers, via matching funds. For other successful applications, a confirmation of matching funds will be required before BHCRI funds can be transferred.
 

The Spring 2020 Cancer Research Training Program funding competition is now closed. Thank you to all those who applied. The next competition will be announced in August with an expected deadline of 1 October, 2020.
