Highlights for 2017 Allied Health Doctoral Fellowships Competition

Incomplete / Unacceptable Applications
In order to maintain the principle of fairness to all applicants, regulations must be adhered to in the preparation of Allied Health Doctoral Fellowship application. Non adherence to the Policies and Checklist will lead to rejection (without appeal) of the application. Requiring adherence to the regulations have the advantage of being unambiguous for applicants, easily enforceable by staff and/or review panels, and fair and equitable for all applicants.

Public Information
Successful applicants need to be aware that the title of their research project and the lay summary will be used without notification and put into the public domain, e.g. web and news releases. Applicants are cautioned not to disclose information that could endanger a proprietary position in these sections.

KRESCENT Doctoral Award
Though applicants at all stages of their Ph.D. studies are eligible for funding, The Kidney Foundation wishes to give priority to applicants who have completed their comprehensive examinations at the time of the commencement of the award.

Applicants who have completed their comprehensive examination(s) are eligible to receive a KRESCENT doctoral award (for information www.krescent.ca), which would replace the KFOC Allied Health Doctoral award. On an annual basis, the highest scoring candidate in the Allied Health Doctoral award competition will be nominated for a KRESCENT Doctoral Award by the peer review committee, if the application scores in the “excellent” category.  The recipient of a KRESCENT doctoral award will participate in the KRESCENT program, including the core curriculum and workshops, and will receive salary funding for up to 3 years, according to KRESCENT guidelines (see Curriculum).
