CANUE is committed to providing opportunities for students and research assistants to gain new skills – from working with big data to conducting robust epidemiological research and presenting at conferences.


The CANUE Board of Directors prioritizes supporting travel to selected conferences in accordance with our Strategic Plan.

Post-doctoral, graduate and undergraduate students who are developing data for CANUE, or who have used our data to produce new research are eligible to apply for a student travel award.

We will provide up to $1,250 toward the cost of travel, hotel, and registration fees for selected events. Applications will be reviewed by a Committee of CANUE members.

The Canadian Public Health Association conference May 28-31, 2018 | Montreal, Quebec
