AHS Critical Care SCN Studentship

The Critical Care Strategic Clinical Network Summer Studentship Award (CC SCN-SSA) is designed to foster research interest in critical care medicine and related disciplines among students at the undergraduate level of study. It is the CC SCN goal that this experience will stimulate an interest in critical care research or clinical practice in critical care medicine (i.e., nurse, physician, allied health professional) and related disciplines (e.g., public health, social sciences, etc.).


• Studentship applicants must be enrolled or accepted as a full-time student in an undergraduate program at an approved post-secondary academic institution;
• The area of proposed research must be related to critical care medicine;
• Candidates must be supervised or co-supervised by a faculty member at one of Alberta’s academic institutions;
• Holders of other full-time, major studentship awards (e.g. CIHR, NSERC, AIHS, etc.) are ineligible for CC SCN Studentship awards;
• Each supervisor may have a maximum of three summer students sponsored by the competition. If there are sufficient applications, the number of awards will be limited to 1 per supervisor, and priority will be given to the highest rated applicant.
• Students previously funded by the CC SCN summer studentship competition will not be eligible.
