Application Guide

Form 1: Student Application

Form 2: Community Involvement Reference 

Form 3: Recommendation 

The purpose of the Category 3 Bursary is to address the need for health and social services personnel with English and French language skills in selected Quebec regions by supporting students enrolled in health and social service disciplines in vocational centres who commit to serve their communities by working in their region.

Vocational Training Centres: $2,000 per student registered for full-time studies in the 2019-2020 Academic Year.

Created by the McGill University Training and Retention of Health Professionals Project 3, the Category 3 Bursary provides financial support to students from selected Quebec regions with English and French language skills pursuing full-time studies in health and social service programs in a government recognized vocational training centre located within their region. 

For each bursary awarded, recipients commit to working in their home region following the successful
completion of their studies for a minimum of one year in a public health and social services institution or
related organization. The Bursary Program is part of the Retention Program as described on the Dialogue McGill Website

These return-for-service bursaries are coordinated locally by the English-speaking community networks
from the selected regions and are designed to respond to regional and local priorities for access
to services in English.

The Category 3 bursary targets students who have a demonstrated involvement in their community. Students are required to provide references from two different individuals who can attest to their community involvement and who can evaluate their potential to commit to working in their region in the field of health and social services upon completion of studies.

Students wishing to apply for the Category 3 bursary must submit their application forms to the contact person at the participating community network in their region.
