Trainee awards:
Matching funds for graduate students and post-doctoral fellows

CPSR trainee awards will help provide recognition and funding to trainees early in their academic research career and fortify their commitment as stroke recovery researchers. Fostering high calibre trainees and encouraging cross training in translational approaches to stroke rehabilitation and recovery is an important strategic priority of the CPSR. By providing targeted funding for trainees who have access to leading national and international stroke recovery researchers, we intend to help train the next generation of stroke recovery researchers who will stimulate new ideas, foster new collaborations and make new discoveries that will advance our mission to identify, support and share game-changing stroke recovery  research. The respective top-ranked applicants will be awarded the Martin Rothstein Post-Doctoral Award and the Luc Vanneste Graduate Student Award.

Interested in collaborating with or learning a new technique in a lab outside of your own institution? 

CPSR has an ongoing Trainee Lab Exchange funding opportunity to enable trainees to form a collaboration with an investigator at another institution to engage in training and collaborative research that will provide a significant contribution to the stroke recovery community. Specifically, the Trainee Lab Exchange Grant will provide financial assistance for trainees to visit a lab outside of their home institution in order to learn a new research technique or perform collaborative research work. It is available to all eligible graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and trainees in professional programs working with scientists at one of the CPSR partner institutions.
