Conference Grants

The Ontario Medical Student Association offers funding for select Ontario medical students presenting at approved medical conferences.

Eligible conference topics should address an issue in the realm of healthcare and/or medical education thereby contributing to the advancement of medicine. The research may be basic, clinical, epidemiological, or social science related to medicine. Only researchers presenting at conferences are eligible.

Funding of eligible expenses up to $250 will be provided to 12 students per submission deadline. All applications will be reviewed for completeness and eligibility. Acceptable applications will then be randomized and one winner from each Ontario medical school will be selected. The remaining 6 awards will be randomly awarded to the pool of remaining applications (i.e. not school dependent).
