All applications were reviewed by an interdisciplinary expert review committee which included ARCC Leadership, ARCC Scientists, and Supervisors of previously funded students, as part of a two-stage process. Applications were funded based on their overall quality and merit in the assessment criteria, and on available ARCC funds. We continue to make it a priority to support the development of future applied cancer control researcher and health leaders across Canada, and look forward to both continuing and expanding our studentship program.
Formal result letters were sent to all applicants in June. The offer of award letters included terms and conditions of the award, and the names of the successful applicants are listed below.
On behalf of Dr. Stuart Peacock and Dr. Kelvin Chan, ARCC Co-Directors, we thank all applicants for their efforts, and congratulate the recipients of the 2020 ARCC Studentships.
