The Research Training Centre (RTC) is pleased to offer a limited number of top-up awards to support graduate students at the LKSKI and KRCBS. The aim of these awards is to top up stipends for graduate students registered with the Research Training Centre (RTC) in order to help them to perform research and obtain a degree through their work.
The successful applicant will receive a one-time Top-Up Award of $2000 CAD. We also encourage applicants to seek external funding.
The award will be paid in one amount directly to the awardee through payroll.
This is a one-time award that will be used as a top-up to your annual stipend. Trainees can apply for this award once as MSc and once as PhD. Priority will be given to those PhD applicants who have not received a top-up award during their MSc studies.
The award is restricted to individuals who meet all of the following criteria at the time of application:
NOTE: This award is subject to the top-up limits of your department.
Please review your departmental guidelines to ensure you are eligible for this award. If you have already received >$2000/year top-up on your stipend or are receiving a Tri-Agency award, you will NOT be eligible.
Applicants must submit the following:
Submit as ONE (1) .pdf file, with the subject “First Name_Last Name_RTCTopUpAward”, electronically to: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Please cc your PI/supervisor on your application email. The RTC will confirm receipt of your application.
The award recipients are expected to attend the RTC trainee seminars SRSA events, present their research at the RTC Clinical (Dry Bench) seminar series (if applicable) and at the RTC Research Day (in the form of an oral or poster presentation). Recipients are encouraged to be active in LKSKI/KRCBS trainee life.
The RTC Top-up Award is intended to be used for your salary and cannot be used for research work (i.e. taking courses, travel, etc.)
Your work/research at St. Michael’s Hospital must be used to satisfy the requirements of your graduate program at a recognized academic institution and under the supervision of a St. Michael’s Hospital supervisor.
Congratulations to the Recipients
