New Funding - TPMI/NL SUPPORT Educational Funding Opportunity Re-Opens for Spring 2016

NL SUPPORT and the rest of our partners in the Translational and Personalized Medicine Initiative (TPMI) are very excited to announce the re-opening of our Educational Funding competition for new and early graduate students! The Educational Funding opportunity provides up to $14,000/year for Master's students, $18,000/year for Ph.D studens, and even funding for post-doctoral trainees involved in research programs whose mandate and goals align with those of NL SUPPORT. 

Since the institution of the Educational Funding opportunity in January of 2015, we have received applications for support from students in a wide variety of Faculties and Departments across Memorial University, including: 

  • Faculty of Business Administration
  • School of Pharmacy
  • School of Nursing
  • Dept. of Biology (Science)
  • Community Health and Humanities (Medicine)
  • Genetics (Medicine)
  • Family Medicine (Medicine)

Of those applications, more than half have been successful, and we currently provide stipends for 14 trainees, including a healthy mix of Masters and PhD's, first-year and more experienced students, as well as trainees from within and without the Faculty of Medicine.

The Educational Funding competition is held bi-annually, in September and March, and for the Spring 2016 competition, t
he deadline for applications 5:00 pm (NT) on Friday, April 15, 2016. 

If you're interest in applying, or know a (prospective or current) student who should, more information on this funding opportunity (including guidelines and application forms) is available through our website
