Apr. 4, 2014

In February 2014, Alberta Innovates – Health Solutions (AIHS) received 438 applications for Summer Studentship awards. AIHS is pleased to announce that awards will be offered to 183 of these applicants, for an overall competition success rate of 42% and a total funding commitment of over $1,000,000.

All applications were reviewed independently by the Summer Studentship Review Committee. Formal notification of these awards will be communicated in letters that will be sent to the Deans’ Offices at the universities in early April 2014.

In cases where there is a disagreement between the published list on the web site and the formal letters, the information in the letters will be considered to be the official decision of AIHS. Individual letters will also be sent directly to each of the Summer Studentship awardees. It is the responsibility of the awardee, his/her supervisor, and the sponsoring institute to ensure that all terms and conditions of the Summer Studentship award are respected.

Dr. Cy Frank, CEO of AIHS, and the Board of Directors wish to congratulate the successful applicants and acknowledge and thank all applicants and their supervisors for their efforts in applying for this award,
