In the various training programs in Quebec, exposure to the vision sciences is generally late and insufficient. The purpose of the Vision Research Network (VHRN) Recruitment Scholarship is to engage students early enough in their training to enable the most promising students to pursue their studies in vision. These scholarships are for students newly admitted to graduate programs and registered full-time at a Quebec university who decides to pursue their training in vision health research under the supervision of a member of the VHRN. In addition, to promote the training of clinician vision scientists, a separate budget is reserved for students registered in health professional degrees who want to engage in vision research.
Amount of the award (first term): Up to $4,000 for MSc students and up to $8,000 for PhD students and post-doctoral fellows
