Friedman Award for Scholars in Health – Apply by Mar 13, 2024

Friedman Award for Scholars in Health

The Friedman Award for Scholars in Health is open to any UBC graduate student or medical resident studying in the area of health. ‘Health’ is interpreted very broadly, and includes health promotion and disease prevention, mental health research, laboratory sciences related to medicine or health, public health, health services research, or any area intended to impact human health.  Applicants do not need to be studying in a health-related degree to be eligible to apply.

Awards of up to $50,000 each will be granted for 6 to 12 months of study outside of Western Canada.  Friedman Scholars are expected to travel to other areas of Canada and the world to seek new perspectives, initiate new collaborations with experts in their fields and be exposed to different cultures.  The award amount will be at the discretion of the adjudication committee.

  • Application Deadline: 13 March 2024 at 4:00 pm PT
