Maternal and Child Health Scholarship Program

About Us

The MatCH Scholarship program is under the auspices of the Medical Sciences Graduate program in the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry. The Graduate Education Coordinators of each of the collaborating departments meet regularly regarding program needs and strategic planning, and adjudicate applications for two intakes per year (September and January). Once a student has selected a mentor for their degree, the Graduate Education Coordinator for that department supports them throughout their studies.
