Alberta Innovates Summer Studentships
The Alberta Innovates Summer Research Studentship (SRS) program provides funding to support students engaging in health and medical research during the summer months (May-August). The intent of the program is to encourage such students to consider careers in medical/health research. New to this program in 2019 is Alberta Innovates strategic interest in supporting students interested in the area of Digital Health. As a condition of our funding from Alberta Innovates, 20% of awards in Summer 2019 are to be directed to Digital Health projects.
Digital Health is defined as “the intersection of information communication technologies and health, discovering, developing, or leveraging technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, sensors, virtual reality, augmented reality, robotics, bio-sensors, and in silico simulations.”
The Undergraduate Research Initiative administers the Alberta Innovates Summer Research Studentship program at the University of Alberta. Contact URI for all inquiries related to the program. Please do not apply to Alberta Innovates directly. Click here for the full application details.
