The primary intent of this program is to offer one or two $20,000 research grants, to a maximum of $40,000 for one year.
A candidate must be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident.
To be eligible the applicant must be a Social Worker, Nurse, or Physiotherapist with professional experience in a hemophilia treatment centre or other comparable settings in which care has been provided to people with hemophilia and other inherited bleeding disorders or persons interested in the field of inherited bleeding disorders. Professionals who have appointments in universities and who can dedicate time to research are encouraged to apply. Students must be in a PhD program in one of the allied health disciplines. Professional experience in a hemophilia treatment centre is desirable but not required.
