CSACI is pleased to announce the 2021 competition for Summer Studentships in the area of Clinical Immunology and Allergy.

The goals of the CSACI summer studentships are to enable undergraduate trainees and medical students to become familiar with the field of Clinical Immunology and Allergy to facilitate interest to pursue further training in this area. The goals of the Society are to support research efforts in the following diseases: asthma, allergic rhinitis, atopic dermatitis, chronic urticaria, food allergy, anaphylaxis, immunodeficiency and other immunological diseases. Studies relevant to any of these conditions covering any of the four pillars of CIHR research are eligible for funding.

A maximum of 6 awards will be given. The final number will depend on the number and quality of the applications we receive.
