This program is designed to stimulate an interest in health research on the part of students enrolled in a university undergraduate program by offering them a summer study program carried out in a laboratory environment.
Students must have completed at least one year of study but not the entire program.
Students must register with the Office of the Associate Dean (Research) in the Faculty of Medicine or, for students in other faculties, with the Office of the Vice-Principal (Research) at the university with which the laboratory is affiliated or where the training program takes place. This university need not be the one where the undergraduate student is enrolled. However, the host university is free to refuse applicants from other universities.
Associate deans or vice-principals
Associate deans and vice-principals are required to fill the form entitled Fichier de proposition de candidatures pour les universités and send it over e-mail to the FRSQ Program Officer.
Awardees must train in a Québec university or one of its affiliated health institutions.
3 or 4 months
Universities with a faculty of medicine should earmark a certain percentage of the awards for medical students. The other awards (all faculties) will be allocated in proportion to the number of undergraduate students enrolled in health sciences.
