The CIHR Doctoral Research Awards consist of two programs administered through a single application:

  • The Frederick Banting and Charles Best Canada Graduate Scholarships Doctoral Awards (CGS-D) program provides special recognition and support to students who are pursuing a doctoral degree in a health-related field in Canada.
  • The Doctoral Foreign Study Award (DFSA) provides special recognition and support to students who are pursuing a doctoral degree in a health-related field abroad.

Candidates apply to the CIHR Doctoral Awards competition and top-ranked candidates are awarded a CGS-D or DFSA depending on the proposed location of research. Both awards are of equivalent value.

All candidates are expected to have an exceptionally high potential for future research achievement and productivity.
