Restracomp Scholarships and Fellowships


Restracomp is the SickKids Research Institute's graduate scholarship program, and it funds exceptional research students 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 $26,000 per year. Master's scholarships provide funding for two years from the start of a Master's program. PhD scholarships provide funding for five years from the start of a combined MSc/PhD or direct-entry PhD program, or for four years from the start of a PhD for applicants who already hold a Master's degree. 

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, the Mouse Imaging Centre) and donors (the Reva Gerstein Studentship, Wilder Bursary, Enbridge Bursary, HSBC Bursary, PricewaterhouseCoopers Bursary, Rogers Family Bursary, and the Toronto Star Bursary). Students applying to Restracomp are automatically considered for the above scholarships and bursaries; no additional application is required. 


The second Friday in April and the second Friday in October, annually.
