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 this 2019-2020 competition year, there is a one-time call for TWO additional $3000 awards each – this is for students specifically researching Ovarian and Breast Cancer. When applying for the WHRFC Full-Time award, those students who are applying for this one-time call shall make this clear when submitting their application to their department for the internal deadline. These students who apply for the Breast and Ovarian Cancer one-time call can only submit one application for the WHRFC Full-Time Award for 2019-2020.

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 Breast and Ovarian Cancer for his/her 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 2019 and Winter 2020 terms in order to be eligible for the 19-20 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.
