About the Program

The Ward Summer Student Research Program is a highly prestigious student experience offered by the Bloorview Research Institute (BRI) that gives  undergraduate students the opportunity to experience a unique interdisciplinary mentorship within the field of childhood disability research.

Successful incumbents will work with a BRI Scientist and their team on a research project, participate in lunch and learns and other activities to enhance both their training and research experience. The program will culminate with an opportunity for students to showcase their work at the annual Ward Student Research Day, which will be held this year on Tuesday, July 19th, 2022.

The 12-week program runs from May 2 to July 22, 2022.

To get an idea of what last year's virtual Research Day was like and view the research posters from last year's cohort, visit the 2021 Virtual Ward Student Research Day.
