The Global Health Axis of the Quebec Population Health Research Network (QPHRN) is pleased to announce its competition designed to support graduate students as well as postdoctoral fellows in the dissemination of their global health research results. The goal of this competition is to provide students and fellows with funding so that they may disseminate their findings to study participants and/or local communities and/or stakeholders.  

Funds may be used to support international or local (within Canada) travel and accommodation, as well as costs related to the organization of activities and/or for the development of dissemination tools (e.g., capsule, infograph, learning module). This competition is not intended to support publications or dissemination activities that target the scientific community.

Eligibility Criteria

  • The candidate must be a student member of the QPHRN
  • The research study must be relevant to global health, i.e address issues relevant to global health, including those of indigenous communities and migrants. Global Health refers to “the work, including research, that is conducted towards reducing health inequalities within and across international borders. It focuses on transnational determinants and solutions and involves the application of Interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approaches” (Koplan et al., 2009)
  • The candidate must return to the location where they collected their data or in another location that is convenient for the dissemination of their results to key stakeholders, communities and/or participants, unless travel is prohibited (e.g., new travel restrictions, safety concerns).
  • The proposed dissemination plan should be completed by April 15, 2023. An activities’ report may be required before this date;
  • The same activities cannot be funded more than once by the FRQ or any other funding agency.
  • A same QPHRN student member can apply to several annual competitions launched by the QPHRN but a Master’s student cannot be awarded more than $5,000 per year, and a Ph. D. or postdoctoral student $10,000 per year.

Bursary or reimbursement of expenses

The amount offered will be a maximum of $3500, depending on the budget submitted in the application.

If possible, and depending on the regulations in effect at the Université de Montréal when the funds are awarded, the amount will be offered in the form of a bursary. Note that current Agreements and provisions in effect at UdeM prevent the payment of bursaries to post-doctoral fellows who are not registered at UdeM. 

If the payment of a bursary is not possible, recipients will have to pay expenses out of pocket and then submit an expense report to receive reimbursement.
