TACC Trainee
Leadership Award

The 2023 TACC Trainee Leadership Award recognizes the significant contributions of graduate students and post-doctoral fellows to the Network’s strategic objectives, i.e. discovery, capacity building and community engagement. Many TACC trainees are stepping up to various roles that have supported the growth and success of TACC activities and programs. This award will support additional contributions within the TACC network that go beyond the trainees’ own research projects.  Examples of such contributions include trainees directly involved in Quebec 1,000 Families (Q1K) or those serving on TACC’s committees and workgroups, such as the Community Engagement Committee. Successful candidates will be offered a stipend of $10,000 CAD for a one-year period. The award can be held in conjunction with other fellowships.
