Well-being, Health and Biomedical Discovery


Academic Unit: inquire with unit

Memorial Deadline: Wednesday 8th, May 2024

External Deadline: Monday 13th, May 2024


The purpose of the CanVECTOR Research Training Awards is to provide financial support for highly qualified, promising trainees or fellows to allow them to pursue research training in thromboembolism at a Canadian centre. The area of training must: 1) align with CanVECTOR priorities, 2) be research focused, and 3) be supervised by a CanVECTOR member.

CanVECTOR Graduate Studentships offer support to candidates who are enrolled in an MSc or PhD program and are interested in conducting VTE-focused research or developing VTE-related methodology expertise. The number of awards granted per year is based on the number of applications received and the availability of partner funding.

Amount of the award: Studentship: maximum of $10,000

Term of award: Studentship awards will be granted for one year. It is expected that the awardee will seek peer-reviewed funding during the first year to support any subsequent years of training (if applicable).

Award renewal: Priority for studentship awards will be given to new applicants. If additional funding is available, renewal applications will be invited and considered in the subsequent competition. It is expected that renewal applicants will demonstrate evidence of substantial progress in achieving their research objectives. Applications from trainees who have actively participated in CanVECTOR activities will be viewed favourably.

Award priority: Priority will be given to applicants who are working with supervisors whose trainees have not received CanVECTOR funding. Without jeopardizing quality, where possible, awards will be distributed throughout Canada.
