The Canadian Institutes of Health Research provide trainee scholarships for Masters, Doctoral, and Postdoctoral level trainees. CIHR Trainee applications require a significant time investment and months of preparation. Moreover, while the instructions are available online, there is a lot of knowledge between the lines that come from decades of experience supporting and writing award-winning applications for CIHR. Join Dr. Rebecca Pillai Riddell for a frank conversation about applying for CIHR trainee awards, with unique considerations for individuals with lived experience with marginalization. Because applications should be a collaboration between trainees and supervisors, supervisors are also encouraged to attend.
