Education Fund

The Ted Rogers Centre for Heart Research Education Fund is intended to attract the world’s brightest doctoral trainees and clinical research fellows to foster a deep pool of talent and further leadership in cardiovascular research and innovations in health care.

These awards provide competitive studentships in basic and applied sciences, engineering and clinical health sciences to support post-doctoral and graduate trainees. Projects are to be aligned with the Centre’s overall mission and objectives, focus on some aspect of heart failure and involve collaboration of at least 2 of 3 partners (SickKids, UHN, U of T).

Ted Rogers Scholar Awards 

Through generous donations from Rogers Communications employees, we have been able to develop Ted Rogers Scholar awards for undergraduate or summer trainees. What began in 2015 as two awards of $1,000 rose to seven awards of $2,000 in 2017 (when seven of 17 applicants were funded).
