Have a Heart Bursary Program
This bursary program is sponsored by the Canadian Cardiovascular Society Academy (CCSA), a charitable organization created in 2000 by the Canadian Cardiovascular Society (CCS). The CCSA’s mandate is to support education, research, scholarships and bursaries for medical students and prospective cardiovascular specialists.
The Have a Heart Bursary Program is designed to introduce promising young Canadian medical students, graduate students, post-graduate trainees and basic scientists-in-training to the cardiovascular sciences (clinical and basic sciences) to encourage a strong Canadian cardiovascular community. Applicants should be committed to a future career in Canada.
Bursary awardees are invited to learn more about their future through participation in the annual Canadian Cardiovascular Congress (CCC). The CCC is the largest gathering of cardiovascular health professionals in Canada. The CCC draws physicians, researchers, trainees, medical students and other cardiovascular professionals from across Canada and around the globe. The CCC is co-hosted by the Canadian Cardiovascular Society and the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada.
