CIHR Doctoral Research Award
Sponsor URL (Doctoral Research Award):
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.
CIHR and external partner(s) financial contributions for this initiative are subject to availability of funds. Should CIHR or external partner(s) funding levels not be available or are decreased due to unforeseen circumstances, CIHR and partner(s) reserve the right to reduce, defer or suspend financial contributions to grants received as a result of this funding opportunity.
