The Toronto Rehabilitation Institute announces the:

TD Bank Financial Group
Scholarship in Rehabilitation-Related Research for Graduate Students with
Disabilities


At Toronto Rehab, our goal is to advance rehabilitation and enhance quality
of life by pushing the frontiers of rehabilitation science. As a fully
affiliated teaching and research hospital of the University of Toronto, we
advance rehabilitation knowledge and practice through research. Research is
an investment in the future. Scholarships are also an investment in the
future.

As researchers, we embrace the concept of consumer participation; we believe
that people with disabilities should be active participants in planning and
conducting research. Thus, with the generous support of TD Bank Financial
Group, Toronto Rehab has established this award to further the active
involvement of people with disabilities in rehabilitation-related research.

The TD Bank Financial Group Scholarship in Rehabilitation-Related Research
for Graduate Students with Disabilities will be awarded to full-time or
part-time student(s) in good standing to support their education and
training. Applicants must have a disability. Candidates must plan to be
enrolled in a graduate program leading to a master's or doctoral degree at
the University of Toronto. Fields of study must relate to rehabilitation but
are not limited to any particular discipline and, for example, may include
but are not limited to rehabilitation sciences, health administration, and
engineering. The scholarship will be for the period from September 2006 to
April 2007, and will be renewable for an additional year depending on
satisfactory performance. The scholarship will be for $20,000; an individual
supplement will be provided to help meet special costs of attending graduate
school that are incurred as a result of disability.

The application and additional information will be available at a later date
in the Research section of the Toronto Rehab website at
www.torontorehab.com. In the meantime, please forward your contact
information to Research Administration and you will be informed when the
application is available:
