This Bursary is a fund to support up to a maximum of 50% of tuition for ESP applicants.
Rationale: We strive to engage a cohort with diverse perspectives, both in professional areas and lived experiences, to optimize the learning in this program. We are piloting this Bursary in recognition that funding access varies across health professions and institutions.
To apply, please complete this online form by June 30, 2023. If you have any question about the process, please contact the CFD Education Development Lead, Inclusion and Access at email@example.com.
The CFD Education Development Lead, Inclusion and Access, will solely receive applications then blind the identifying information for committee review and any further management of information. Funding is not guaranteed and cannot be deferred to another CFD program or an ESP program cohort beyond the 2023-2025 year.
In service of trying to close gaps in funding access, please seek funding from your department, institutions, professional associations, etc. prior to applying to Bursary funds – collectively working towards this will help make more diverse participation possible. We understand there are unaligned timelines, so it is fine to apply to the Bursary if you have applied for other funding and not yet received a response – please just indicate your specific situation in the form so that we can follow up with you as needed. Below is a list of some funding avenues we are aware of, and we would appreciate your sharing others with us to include in this list.
