The Canadian Liver Foundation Graduate Studentship Program enables academically superior students to undertake full-time studies in a Canadian University in a discipline relevant to the objectives of the Foundation.

The applicants must be accepted into a full-time university graduate science program in a medically-related discipline related to a Masters or Doctoral degree and hold a record of superior academic performance in studies relevant to the proposed training. Canadian citizens, landed immigrants and permanent residents will receive first consideration.

Applicants must be sponsored by a faculty supervisor with a record of productive medical research and sufficient competitively acquired research funding to ensure the satisfactory conduct of the student's research during the term of the award.

Level of Funding

The award will be $20,000 per year. Payment of the award will be in the form of equal quarterly instalments, the first on or about September 1.

Canadian citizens, landed immigrants and permanent residents will receive first consideration.

A limit of two applications may be sponsored by a faculty supervisor, who must have a record of productive medical research related to the liver and adequate research funding, and who must be prepared to provide the student with direct supervision during the term of the award.

Level of Funding

The award will be $3500 for the student’s stipend plus $500 for supplies. Payment of the award will be made on or about June 1, to the sponsoring institution.   Each award will be for any three summer months (May-August).
