CIHR/STIHR Youth Mentorship InitiativeCIHR recognizes the need to provide youth with opportunities to advance their interests and abilities in health research so that they can make informed post-secondary academic and career choices.
This is why CIHR is proud to launch the CIHR/STIHR Youth Mentorship Initiative. This first Synapse program is opened to all Strategic Training Initiative in Health Research (STIHR) and will provide funds to facilitate the connection between STIHR trainees/researchers and young Canadians. The Program's primary target audience is intermediate and high school students as they are most receptive to in-depth mentorship experiences and post-secondary career advice.
Through collaborative partnerships between these training centers and science awareness organizations, STIHR trainees and researchers will connect with young people throughout their community.
