Eligibility Requirements


All prospective SRTC training scholarship applicants must ensure they meet the following eligibility requirements:
(Please note that only scholarship applications from applicants meeting the eligibility criteria will be considered.)
All Skin Research Training Centre scholarship applicants meet a number of requirements prior to submission of a scholarship application.
All scholarship applicants must complete all the following:
  1. Prospective SRTC scholarship applicants must identify a supervisor for the research component of their SRTC scholarship training and confirm a supervisor's support prior to application. A list of current SRTC supervisors can be found on this page. Other supervisors not currently listed may also be acceptable. Please contact the SRTC coordinator to determine a supervisor's suitability in advance of any SRTC scholarship application.
  2. Prospective SRTC scholarship applicants should confirm they have the appropriate, relevant academic education for the scholarship category to which they intend to apply. Graduate student applicants must hold a degree that is academically equivalent to a 4-year Canadian Bachelor's degree with excellent grades. Postdoctoral fellows will be expected to hold a PhD or equivalent with excellent grades. Clinical fellows must hold an MD or equivalent and have completed their residency training. Research nurses and and other health care professionals can also apply for SRTC scholarships with strong academic credentials.
  3. Graduate student applicants (MSc/PhD) must ensure that they meet the admission requirements of the University/ College and Faculty they will matriculate with. Different Faculties within a college may have different matriculation eligibility requirements. Students should discuss the specifics of their eligibility with their prospective supervisor in advance of submitting an SRTC scholarship application.
  4. Scholarship applicants need not have prior training in a field of dermatology. However, applicants should expect to be exclusively focused on research and training in aspects of dermatology for the duration of their SRTC scholarship and should be focused on a future career in dermatology.
  5. All prospective scholarship applicants must develop a research proposal and training plan in consultation with their prospective supervisors. This typically requires a significant amount of time. Prospective applicants are advised to contact their supervisors well in advance of application.
