Since 2001, the MSFHR Scholar Program has supported more than 400 early-career health researchers as they establish independent research careers, build leading health research programs and train junior scientists. This in turn helps to develop, attract and retain BC’s best and brightest health researchers and support the advancement of world-class health research in BC.

Each Scholar award provides salary support for up to five years, helping Scholars protect time to conduct research and expand their potential to make significant contributions to their field.
