Alberta Innovates - Health Solutions Summer Studentships offer motivated students with exceptional academic records an opportunity to participate in medical or health research in Alberta during the summer months.

- registered in an undergraduate degree program outside of Alberta, and desiring to engage in research during the summer at an Alberta institution,
- registered in an M.D. program, and who may also hold an undergraduate or graduate degree,
- exceptional high school students with records of participation in the healthcare system, and a clear interest in pursuing a health research career,
- currently in the last term of their undergraduate degrees and who have applied either to Medical School or to a graduate program that would start in the coming Fall.
The award is tenable for a minimum of 2 months, and a maximum of 4 months during the period of May to August.
A faculty supervisor possessing both a record of productive health-oriented research and sufficient resources to ensure the satisfactory conduct of the research must sponsor the candidate.
The supervisor may sponsor no more than 2 summer students per year and each student must have a separate project.
The stipend is currently set at $1400 per month.
