The Precision Health Scholarship Competition is organized jointly with the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation scholarship competition.

Candidates who wish to apply to the Precision Health scholarship must apply via the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation scholarship competition and select YES to the question “Would you like to apply for the Precision Health scholarship”. The application will be evaluated within the framework of both competitions by the same jury. The best candidates will be selected for the Precision Health scholarship (one scholarship per category). Other applications received may obtain a scholarship from the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation if they have evaluation results above the funding threshold.

Scholarship accumulation

The accumulation of major scholarships is not permitted. Recipients must declare any scholarship received from other granting organizations or foundations.

Recipients who have obtained a nominative scholarship from another public granting organization or a foundation for an amount equal to or greater than the amount of the Precision Health scholarship must decline the precision health scholarship as soon as it is offered. Granting scholarships of lower amounts will have no impact, unless their sum exceeds the authorized amounts.

Parental Leave

Students who took maternity, paternity or adoption leave during the study program related to the scholarship application may benefit from an eligibility extension of a maximum of twelve (12) months. Students wishing to benefit from this extension, must notify the program manager and include a letter of justification in the annex file.

Foundation Scholarship recipients who wish to take a maternity, paternity or adoption leave must notify the Research Directorate at least 30 days before the start of the leave. The scholarship will then be suspended for a maximum of twelve (12) months. The Scholarship end date will then be postponed for a period equal to the student's absence.
