Every day 27 Canadians are diagnosed with a brain tumour. Brain tumours are unpredictable and
complex. They can affect vision, hearing, memory, balance and mobility. Their effects are physical,
emotional, financial, and last a lifetime.

Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada raises funds to provide vital services and programs for the
brain tumour community. We also lead research into the cause of and cure for this devastating
disease through a variety of funding opportunities including the Brain Tumour Research
Studentship. This award provides students opportunities to gain experience in Brain Tumour
research and its research methods.

Applications will be considered for students working on brain tumour research projects in the
following two categories:
 Medical students, without PHD and currently in their first year at a medical school in
