CCFF Studentships


To support highly qualified graduate students who are registered for a higher degree, and who are undertaking full-time research training in areas of the biomedical or behavioural sciences relevant to cystic fibrosis.

Studentships are awarded for studies at the Master's or doctoral level. If a student receiving support for studies leading to a Master's degree elects to continue to a doctorate degree, he or she must reapply for an initial CCFF studentship at the doctoral level.


Applicants must be highly qualified graduate students who are registered for a higher degree and who are undertaking full-time research training in areas relevant to cystic fibrosis, or highly qualified students who are registered in a joint MD/MSc or MD/PhD programme. Equitable consideration will be given to studentship applicants from outside of Canada who intend to return to their own country on completion of a studentship.
