Summer Student Research Award
Cancelled - 2020 Summer Student Research Awards
Given the evolving situation with COVID-19, the Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre has decided to cancel the 2020 Summer Student Research Award.
We regret any inconvenience this cancellation will cause; ensuring safety for our patients, students, staff, physicians and volunteers remains our top priority.
We anticipate offering the award in 2021 and encourage students to monitor the RVH Research Institute website in the new year for important award information and dates.
The RVH Research Institute is committed to supporting the scholarly development of students enrolled at a Canadian university or college. The RVH Summer Student Research Award is a competitive award that enables successful students to engage in an immersive summer research training experience intended to supplement and give practical meaning to their academic coursework. Successful candidates will be eligible to receive up to $4,500.00 for a full sixteen (16)-week period.
Applicant’s must be students actively enrolled in a bachelors degree program or professional degree program (e.g., MD, PharmD). Students who are transitioning between two distinct post-secondary degree programs during the time of the award are also eligible to apply. Students are responsible for indentifying and contacting a potential RVH supervisor. Preference will be given to students who have already identified a supervisor and project, or are returning to continue on an existing project.
