Breast Cancer Foundation - BC/Yukon Region is a
leading supporter of breast cancer research in Canada. CBCF’s studentships are administered through
the BC Cancer Agency (BCCA) and take place every summer between May 1st
and Aug 31st at BCCA sites across the province. Students’ work may
cover any discipline of breast cancer research including clinical,
translational, basic, behavioural or population research areas.
Each year, BCCA makes
available up to 15 summer research studentships to support senior undergraduate
university students and/or junior medical or dental students studying in BC.
CBCF reviews all breast cancer related projects for possible funding each
summer. Studentships are available for a period between eight and 16 weeks, and
all research must be funded and supervised by a senior health professional with
an appointment at BCCA.
The awards are
intended for recipients who will be full-time in their role as summer students with
no other jobs or positions that compete with their research time. These
students are part of the promising future of breast cancer research in the
province and CBCF is honoured to provide them with this opportunity for
