The Faculty of Medicine’s Youth Summer Program (MED YSP) is a unique university-led science program based at the University of Toronto (UofT) and run by the Division of Teaching Laboratories (DTL) in the Faculty of Medicine.

Over the last 6 years MED YSP provided over 30 fully-funded scholarships for Aboriginal youth to attend the program. In order to provide this opportunity to even more Aboriginal youth from urban, rural and remote communities, we are looking to work with individuals/schools/organizations that can help by: a) be the contact point for their community b) disseminate information about this opportunity and c) together provide a financial means for Aboriginal youth to explore medical careers and post-secondary education.

The program runs from July 10 to August 4th, 2017 and is open to students currently enrolled in Grade 10, 11, or 12.

Each one week, fully-paid scholarship for First Nations, Inuit and Métis students includes:

• Academic Content

• Program Materials (equipment, supplies)

• Supervision by highly trained instructors

• Career talks with professionals in their respective fields

• Opportunities to learn about university life and admissions

*Transportation, accommodations, and meals are not included.

Applications for all scholarships will be accepted until April 2nd, 2017.
