More Canadian research is needed to address the needs over the life course of those who have served our nation and their families. Canada provides our military with the best training and equipment in the world but we must also ensure that when these soldiers return home to the "new battlefield" of challenges due to physical and mental injuries or the social challenges of reintegrating into family and community life that they are provided with same level of support. This support must be based on the best evidence possible resulting from research from the best and brightest Canada has to offer.

With this goal, the Canadian Institute for Military and Veteran Health Research (CIMVHR) and The Legion National Foundation have made a commitment to Canadian scholarship that will ensure a lasting legacy for Veteran research in Canada by training a future generation of researchers. Creating links between up and coming researchers and CIMVHR's established network of University Investigators and Government partners will also ensure that high impact research can be rapidly translated into practice, policies and programs that affect the lives of those who have served and their families.

The Legion National Foundation is proud to offer this annual entrance scholarship to a master’s level student specializing in research related to Veterans and their families.
