Canadian Medical Assocation

The CMA 150th Anniversary Bursaries and Awards program celebrates the values of the profession while providing financial support for medical students.

How the program works

From 2017 to 2021, the CMA Foundation will provide annual funding to every medical school in Canada for an $8,500 bursary and a $15,000 award.

The bursaries provide financial help to students who need it most. The awards recognize student leaders who demonstrate the values of professionalism, including honesty, integrity, respect, responsibility, accountability, collaboration and a commitment to self-improvement. In total, the program will give a financial boost to more than 170 Canadian medical students.
