The objective of the Canadian Liver Foundation (CLF) is to provide support for research and education into the causes, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of diseases of the liver. Graduate Studentship grants are intended for scientists-in-training who are working towards obtaining their master's or doctoral degree and whose research projects are related to liver diseases.



  • Applicants must be accepted into a full-time university graduate science program in a medically-related discipline related to a master's or doctoral degree and hold a record of superior academic performance in studies relevant to the proposed training.
  • Canadian citizens and permanent residents will receive first consideration.
  • Applicants must be sponsored by a faculty supervisor with a record of productive medical research and sufficient competitively acquired research funding to ensure the satisfactory conduct of the student's research during the term of the award. The supervisor's publication record should indicate significant contribution to liver related studies.
  • A student supported by the CLF must not hold a current stipend award from another granting agency
