Eligibility The Women’s Health Research Foundation of Canada has offered the Women’s Health Research Foundation of Canada Graduate Scholarship annually since 1992. In 2009, the Foundation established an endowment fund at the University of Manitoba to support the Scholarship in perpetuity. The Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative has made a contribution to the fund. The fund will be used to offer scholarships to graduate students whose research focus is in some area of women’s health.

For the 2023-2024 academic year, two scholarships valued at $3,000 will be offered to graduate students who:

  • are enrolled full-time in the Faculty of Graduate Studies, in any Masters or Doctoral program;
  • have achieved a minimum degree grade point average of 3.5 (or equivalent) based on the last 60 credit hours of study;
  • have demonstrated superior intellectual ability and academic accomplishment;
  • are undertaking or has proposed to undertake research in the area of Women’s health for their thesis or practicum.

  • A student admitted to a Master’s or Doctoral program under the “Provisional Status” may not receive this award during the provisional period. The selected recipient must meet the above criteria, including intending to register full time in both the Fall 2023 and Winter 2024 terms in order to be eligible for the 23-24 WHRFC award.

    Recipients may hold the Women’s Health Research Foundation of Canada Graduate Scholarship concurrently with any other awards, consistent with policies in the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
