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 opportunities. This opportunity will allow students to become more familiar with the Brain Tumour Research Field and its research methods.


Applications will be considered for students in the following two categories:

Medical students working on a brain tumour research project, without PHD and currently in their first year at a medical school in Canada.

Undergraduate science or psychology students currently working on a brain tumour research project, in their first, second or third year of study working towards a four-year Bachelor of Science/Arts degree from a Canadian post-secondary institution.

Successful applicants will receive $10,000 over two years ($5,000 per summer). Funding will be granted for students working on projects in June, July and August 2022 and June, July and August 2023 (unless otherwise requested).
