Call for Applications: McGill Health and Social Services Bursary Program

SHERBROOKE, March 16, 2017 – Calling all health and social services students in the Estrie and Montérégie-East; applications for the McGill Health and Social Services Community Leadership Bursary Program, which awarded $20,000 to four students last autumn, are now available through Townshippers’ Association.

Created by the McGill University Training and Retention of Health Professionals Project, the program, which addresses the need for health professionals with English and French language skills, awards bursaries to students from selected Quebec regions, who are pursuing full-time studies in the health and social services fields.  

Since 2010, approximately $160,000 has been awarded through 25 bursaries allowing future professionals to pursue careers in the region as nurses, technicians (radiology, inhalation therapy, etc.) social workers, psychologists, nutritionists and more.

Students are invited to apply for one of the two categories of awards available.

Category 1 is for eligible students who are studying at an institution located outside their home region. Bursary amounts are awarded based on students’ level of study with up to $10,000 at the university level and $5,000 for cégep/college and secondary school vocational training. 

Category 2 is for eligible students who are studying at an institution located within their home region. Up to $5,000 is awarded to university level students and $2,500 for cégep/college and secondary school vocational training.

Recipients of the bursaries must commit to returning to a selected Quebec region following the successful completion of their studies to work for a minimum of one year in a public health and social services institution or related organization.

All applications must be received no later than May 12, 2017, at 5:00pm. Information can be found on Townshippers’ career and employment website, www.Topportunity.ca/student.
