If you are interested in applying for this award, which is due this Saturday, please let me know by Wednesday, March 12th. If there is more than one student interested, I will need your abstracts by Friday, so I can get a committee to choose whose abstract goes forward. Please make sure you look at the guidelines below.
The Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies will collect nominations on behalf of UBC to forward to the CSHRF Coordinator. Graduate programs are invited to nominate their top PhD students in health sciences to the Faculty of Graduate Studies. Graduate programs may nominate up to 5% of their PhD students in health sciences (for instance, if a program has 40 PhD students in health sciences, it could submit up to 2 nominees). Appropriate selection criteria are to be determined by the graduate programs. Please note that the symposium theme rotates from year to year and should not bias student selection.
