Restracomp Scholarships and Fellowships


Restracomp is the SickKids Research Institute's graduate scholarship and post-doctoral fellowship program, and it funds exceptional researchers working under the supervision of a SickKids scientist. There are two Restracomp competitions annually, in April and October. Restracomp master’s and PhD scholarships are valued at $24,000, research fellowships at $33,750, and MD scholarships and fellowships at $40,000.

Under the Restracomp umbrella, the Research Institute also offers a variety of co-funded scholarships and bursaries to top-ranking students in partnership with SickKids Centres (the Garron Family Cancer Centre, the Centre for Brain and Mental Health, the Labatt Heart Centre, the Centre for Genetic Medicine, and the Centre for Global Child Health) and donors (the Reva Gerstein Studentship/Fellowship, Wilder Bursary, Enbridge Bursary, HSBC Bursary, PricewaterhouseCoopers Bursary, Rogers Family Bursary, and the Toronto Star Bursary).
