McGill Global Health Programs (GHP) is pleased to announce the winners of the 2020 Global Health MDCM Student Research Awards competition. This new funding competition aims to support current McGill University MDCM students to participate and gain experience in remotely conducted global health research projects. Through the generosity and support of our donors, GHP has temporarily transitioned certain awards normally administered under GHP’s Travel Awards program to support this funding initiative during a year in which the COVID-19 pandemic is preventing travel.
Successful applicants will receive funds designated towards a stipend to remotely conduct or assist a faculty member on a global health research project. Global Health MDCM Student Research Awards support remotely conducted research only - funds cannot be applied towards travel or fieldwork. The intent of this program is to support and encourage students to continue their research work while abiding by the travel directives defined by the University in relation to COVID-19.
The winners of the 2020 Global Health MDCM Student Research Awards competition are:
