CSACI Studentship 2024


CSACI is pleased to announce the 2024 competition for Summer Studentships in the area of Clinical Immunology and Allergy.

CSACI Summer Studentship Awards


The goals of the CSACI summer studentships are to enable undergraduate trainees and medical students to become familiar with the field of Clinical Immunology and Allergy to facilitate interest to pursue further training in this area. The goals of the Society are to support research efforts in the following diseases: asthma, allergic rhinitis, atopic dermatitis, chronic urticaria, food allergy, anaphylaxis, immunodeficiency and other immunological diseases. Studies relevant to any of these conditions covering any of the four pillars of CIHR research are eligible for funding.

A maximum of 6 awards will be given. The final number will depend on the number and quality of the applications received.


Details of the Award



  • Trainees enrolled in a full-time undergraduate or pharmacy degree program or in the
    1st or 2nd year towards a medical degree at a Canadian University are eligible for the award.
  • Research must be undertaken at a Canadian University or Institute.
  • Supervisors must have an academic appointment at a Canadian University or Institute and
    be CSACI members in good standing.
  • Depending on the volume of submissions the Committee will aim to limit the awards to
    no more than one per University.


  • The studentship will be for a term of six weeks to four months for the period May-August 31st,
    2024, non-renewable.

Financial Support

  • A maximum of six (6) awards will be given depending on the number and quality of the
    applications. Each award will have a value of $3500-$6000 (i.e. $1500 a month for 4 months –
    for a maximum of $6,000). The award will be dependent on the duration of the studentship.
