Canadian Institutes of Health Research Canada Graduate Scholarship (CIHR CGSD)

CIHR provides doctoral scholarships through their Health Research Training Award Programs to students pursuing a doctoral degree in a health-related field. CIHR Doctoral awards are valued at $35,000 per year for up to three years. To apply you must be a citizen or permanent resident of Canada. 

Students currently registered at UVic, on an approved leave from UVic or who were registered in a degree program at UVic in this calendar year (Jan – Dec 2022) must be nominated by UVic and therefore are required to participate in the UVic internal adjudication process.
