Queen Elizabeth Scholarships in Strengthening Health and Social Systems

 

Are you a student interested in working with the Forum and its international partners to strengthen health and social systems? Scholars will become part of our large and growing network of health- and social-system leaders from across Commonwealth and low- and middle-income countries.

If you are interested in learning more about this scholarship opportunity, find out how to apply and what to expect. Gain insights from our Queen Elizabeth Scholars by watching live or recorded webinars, or connect with our Scholars in Strengthening Health Systems (2014-18) or in Strengthening Health and Social Systems (2018-21).

Scholarships are available to:

  • outgoing interns (McMaster undergraduate or graduate students) – seven to eight students per year to undertake internships in eligible countries, which include Commonwealth countries (other than Canada) and non-Commonwealth low- and middle-income countries
  • incoming scholars (students from the same eligible countries pursuing a graduate degree at McMaster) – two to three students per year to pursue graduate training at McMaster

International partners
The McMaster Health Forum is proud to partner with the following organizations who have agreed to host interns over the course of the scholarship:

Africa

Americas

Eastern Mediterranean

South-East Asia

  • Evidence-Based Medicine Center of Lanzhou University, China

Western Pacific

The McMaster Health Forum is honoured to be a recipient of one of 20 Canadian Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Scholarship programs. From 2014-18, the Forum’s program focused on strengthening health systems in Commonwealth countries. With the renewal of our program funding from 2018-21, we’ve expanded our focus to include strengthening social systems and we’ve expanded the reach of the program to include all low- and middle-income countries.
