Announcing SYP bursaries for the 2020 Canadian Conference on Global Health


Every year, more than 600 people from 30+ countries gather for the Canadian Conference on Global Health (CCGH). Practitioners, researchers, educators, students, policy makers, and community mobilizers from health, humanitarian, and other sectors come to share their knowledge and experience and find new ways to work together. The 2020 edition of the CCGH will take place online from Monday, October 19, 2020 to Thursday, October 22, 2020, and will examine the theme of “Global Health in a Changing Climate”.

The Canadian Coalition for Global Health Research (CCGHR) is proud to offer bursaries to attend this year’s CCGH. Financial assistance will increase the accessibility of this event, allowing more of our students and young professional (SYP) members to benefit from the learning and networking opportunities provided by this important event. Five bursaries will be awarded to eligible CCGHR SYP members to cover the cost of registration for the event.

Bursary eligibility criteria:

  • Applicants must be paying CCGHR student/young professional members at the time of application ($35/year). To become a member or renew >

  • Preference will be given to SYPs who: 1) have had their CCGH abstract accepted; 2) are available for the full duration of the conference, October 19-22; 3) have not had the opportunity to attend CCGH previously; and 4) do not have access to alternate funding mechanisms (e.g financial support from their school or work).

  • Applicants must agree to either individually, or in collaboration with peers, produce a deliverable (either a blog, multimedia piece, etc) that summarizes their reflections on and learnings from the conference and/or be a special rapporteur for one day of conference with other attendees.
