Brain Canada and Heart & Stroke are thrilled to be partnering once again for the launch of the Personnel Awards for Black Scholars.

The objective of the competition is to increase the number of highly qualified Black trainees across Canada committed to working in the fields of heart and/or brain research (i.e. stroke and vascular cognitive impairment). In the context of this award, heart and/or brain health research refers to research addressing heart conditions, stroke, and vascular cognitive impairment that contributes to the cardiovascular and cerebrovascular health of people living in Canada through prevention, treatment and recovery.

Heart & Stroke and Brain Canada are supporting the Doctoral Personnel Awards for Black Scholars in committing up to a total of $360,000 in 2024.

The stipends awarded will be up to $90,000 CAD ($30,000 per year for up to three (3) years) enabling Black trainees to focus on their Doctoral research studies and engage with mentors as part of their training.
