The MSFHR Scholar Program allows early career researchers to establish an independent research career, build a leading research program, and expand their potential to make significant contributions to their field.

Key dates:

In previous scholar competitions, health professionals (in active clinical service) were eligible to apply for the Scholar Program. MSFHR will be launching a new program (Health Professional-Investigator Program) specifically targeting health professionals to conduct and apply research in addition to their clinical work (guidelines will be posted in early October). The following diagram assists health professional applicants decide which program to apply for.

If you are still unsure whether you should apply to the existing Scholar Program or the new Health Professional-Investigator Program after reviewing the above diagram, please contact Rashmita Salvi at 604.714.2779 or for assistance.
