All 3-year track trainees have access to $1,250 / yr in their 2nd and 3rd years of the Program, to facilitate travel to their mentors’ labs, and to autism-specific events, like the International Meeting for Autism Research (IMFAR).
Travel and lodging expenses related to the ART Summer School and the biennial Winter Institute are covered by the ART Program directly, and not through these travel stipends.
Canada-China Norman Bethune Health Research Scholarships Program
The Canada-China Norman Bethune Health Research Scholarships Program offers up to 30 health research doctorate scholarships annually to top students from China to pursue their PhD degree in a health-related research field currently funded by the CIHR STIHR Programs, like the ART Program. In China, this program will be coordinated by the Department of International Cooperation and Exchanges of the Ministry of Education (MOE), and implemented by the China Scholarship Council (CSC), who will ensure that the country's top students which are expected to have an exceptionally high potential for future research achievement and productivity have the opportunity to train in Canada.
