CMA Foundation COVID-19 Support Grant

The CMA Foundation COVID-19 Support for Medical Learners Bursary is a one-time gift made to the University by the CMA Foundation. The Bursary is designed to provide immediate relief for unexpected financial need such as the inability to meet essential living expenses due specifically to COVID-19. It is not intended to be a source of long-term funding or to replace lost income or to support discretionary expenses.

The Bursary will be awarded to residents of PGME, who demonstrate unanticipated financial need as a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic and who meet the following criteria:

  • The applicant must be a full-time Ministry funded resident in good standing at the University
  • Financial need
  • Demonstrate financial impact experienced by the applicant as a result of COVID-19
  • Confirmation that the applicant has applied, where applicable, to government funding and/or for banking support (as per their COVID-19 support)
  • Preference to residents in their transition years; e.g. final year residents
  • Other, as per faculty requirements

The Bursary is not designed to provide relief for the following ineligible expenses:

  • Directly replacing lost income (learners requesting direct income loss support should apply for government assistance, as applicable)
  • Missed loan payments, or payments in arrears
  • Discretionary expenses
  • Other non-essential personal expenses unrelated to COVID-19
  • Expenses incurred by immediate family members
