The Toronto Rehabilitation Institute is pleased to announce its $20,000
scholarship in Rehabilitation-Related Research for Graduate Students
with Disabilities is now available at additional universities. Besides
the University of Toronto, students at McMaster University, Ryerson
University, the University of Waterloo, Wilfred Laurier University, and
York University are now eligible to apply for these scholarships.

Toronto Rehab views the scholarship as more than an academic award.
"This exciting scholarship is intended to act as a spur to involving
people with disabilities in rehabilitation-related research," says Dr.
Geoff Fernie, Vice President, Research, at Toronto Rehab.

"We look forward to working closely with scholars from the eligible
universities to support their academic and research success and to open
doors to careers in rehabilitation research."

With the support of TD Bank Financial Group, Toronto Rehab is able to
provide scholarships of $20,000 and a supplement for educational
expenses incurred as a result of the student's disability. Applicants
must plan to be enrolled in a rehabilitation-related graduate program
leading to a masters or doctoral degree at one of the eligible
universities.

Fields of study must relate to rehabilitation but are not limited to any
particular discipline. Eligible disciplines may include but are not
limited

to: Engineering, Social Work, Psychology, Medicine, Physical and
Occupational Therapy, Kinesiology, Nursing, Recreation and Music
Therapy, Nutrition, Pharmacology, Speech-Language Pathology, Biology,
Biostatistics, Chemistry, Physics, Early Childhood Education,
Architecture, Computer Science, Sociology, and Public Policy and
Administration.

The next round of scholarships will be awarded for the 2007/08 academic
year, with an application deadline date of May 1, 2007. Applications are
encouraged from international students and final year undergraduate
students.
