Studentship Funding

The Canadian 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 hands-on research.
