CMA 150th Anniversary Bursaries and Awards Program

The Canadian Medical Association (CMA) celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2017. As part of the celebrations, the newly created CMA 150th Anniversary Bursaries and Awards program builds on the CMA legacy of contributing to a strong and meaningful future for the medical community.

Over five years, the CMA Foundation will give every medical school annual funding for a $15,000 award and an $8,500 bursary to benefit over 170 Canadian medical students.

This program celebrates the values of the medical profession and eases some of the financial challenges faced by many students.
