Memorial Deadline: Tuesday 5th, September 2023

External Deadline: Friday 8th, September 2023


Heart & Stroke’s new Women’s Personnel Awards will support young scholars invested in women’s heart and brain health early in their training stage (Doctoral) and during their transition (post-doctoral) to becoming independent researchers. These awards aim to jump start careers, sparking interest in women’s heart and brain health research.

The objective of the competition is to increase the number of researchers and clinician-scientists in Canadian universities and research institutions devoted specifically to women’s heart and/or brain health and, in so doing, expand research initiatives in this field. In the context of this award, heart and/or brain health research refers to research addressing heart conditions, stroke, and vascular cognitive impairment. The stipends awarded will enable Doctoral Students and Postdoctoral Fellows to pursue their program of research and engage with mentors as part of their training.

See the Heart & Stroke website for more information.
