The RVH Research Institute is committed to supporting the scholarly development of students enrolled at a Canadian university or college.

The RVH Summer Student Research Award is a competitive award that enables successful students to engage in an immersive summer research training experience intended to supplement and give practical meaning to their academic coursework. Successful candidates will be eligible to receive up to $4,500.00 for a full sixteen (16)-week period.


Applicant’s must be students actively enrolled in a bachelors degree program or professional degree program (e.g., MD, PharmD). Students who are transitioning between two distinct post-secondary degree programs during the time of the award are also eligible to apply. Students are responsible for identifying and contacting a potential RVH supervisor. Preference will be given to students who have identified a supervisor and project, or are returning to continue work on an existing project.
