The IRCM Foundation awards $418,500 in scholarships

Thanks to the contributions of its generous donors, the Montreal Clinical Research Institute (IRCM) Foundation has awarded 37 scholarships to masters and PhD students as well as to postdoctoral fellows. Totaling $418,500, these scholarships were awarded through the IRCM Foundation's annual scholarship competition.

Nominees were selected by committees of researchers from external institutions, who evaluated the applications submitted following the 2019 internal scholarship competition. The recipients of the Bombardier-Molson scholarships in Molecular and Cellular Medicine were recruited by a committee of IRCM researchers.

Congratulations to the winners!
