Applicants must not hold another competitive stipend award at the same time as the Canadian Blood Services Graduate Fellowship.
• Applicants must be engaged in full-time training in research in a graduate program at a Canadian university leading to a Ph.D. or combined health professional Ph.D. program. While priority will be given to applicants enrolled in a PhD Program, applications from applicants enrolled in an MSc Program will be considered, if, at the applicant’s institution, it is not possible to register directly in the PhD stream. Applicants registered solely for a Master’s degree will not be considered.
• The program is open to both Canadians and citizens of other countries.
• Applicants must be enrolled in a training program that includes actual involvement in research and not only courses in research methods.
• Applicants’ proposed research must be relevant to one or more of the research priorities described in Section I of these Guidelines.
• The proposed primary academic supervisor must be prepared to host the successful applicant in their laboratory for the duration of the training (2-4 years).
