Financial Aid for Medical Students and Health Professionals


The Canadian Medical Foundation (CMF) provides much-needed financial aid – in the form of bursaries and scholarships – to deserving medical students actively furthering their medical education. The CMF understands the challenges facing today’s medical students and strives to alleviate some of these challenges through providing financial support to reduce the burden and corresponding stress facing today’s medical students. The CMF believes that assisting today’s medical students in furthering their education will help secure tomorrow’s exceptional medical professionals and ensure the optimal health of all Canadians in our future.

CMF provides medical bursaries and scholarships in partnership with the Provincial/Territorial Medical Associations (PTMAs) and universities across Canada, as well as through our Donor Advised Fund Program.  Application process and deadlines vary in each case.
