Targeted Bursaries are part of the Dialogue McGill Health and Social Services Community Leadership Bursary Program
- The purpose of Targeted Bursaries is to respond to specific priorities for access to health and social services in the English language in the Greater Montreal Region.
- These priorities are identified by community networks and health and social service institutions in their catchment area. The bursaries support students who pursue studies in health.
- Created by the McGill University Training and Retention of Health Professionals Project4, these bursaries provide financial support to students residing in the Greater Montreal Region with English and French language skills pursuing full-time studies in the area of health and social services in a government recognized educational institution.
- For each bursary awarded, recipients commit to working in their catchment area or territory of the Centre intégré de santé et de services sociaux (CISSS) or Centre intégré universitaire de santé et de services sociaux (CIUSSS) served by the community network following the successful completion of their studies for a minimum of one year in a public health and social services institution or related organization.
- These return of service bursaries are coordinated locally by the English-speaking community networks serving the Montreal Metropolitan Communities. The bursaries are designed to respond to specific priorities for access to health and social services in the English language in the Greater Montreal Region. These needs are identified by community networks and health and social service institutions in their catchment area. Bursaries will be given to community-oriented students whose field of study will lead them to a career in health and social services that will help address the priority areas for English-language services identified by the community network and the CISSS or CIUSSS serving the territory.
