Our fundraising priorities:

Schulich Indigenous Scholarship Fund

The Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry joins other medical schools across the country in recognizing it must become more proactive in recruiting Indigenous students and training Indigenous doctors and dentists. Only 0.1 per cent of physicians in Canada are Indigenous – the ratio of Indigenous physicians to the Indigenous population is 1:33,000, compared to 1:515 for the general population. These are startling numbers.

The Robarts Discovery Fund

At Robarts Research Institute, we understand the value of time, especially when you or someone you love is affected by a debilitating disease. That is why we’ve made it our mission to accelerate medical discovery.

The Schulich Excellence Fund

Schulich Medicine & Dentistry strives to bring the School’s vision of becoming a global leader in optimizing life-long health through innovations in research, education and active engagement with our communities to life. Our vision is broad – inclusive of development, health and illness throughout the life span. The Schulich Excellence Fund is an unrestricted fund that addresses immediate priorities and responds to emerging opportunities across the School. We rely on community support to help build this fund so that we can provide the best possible experience for our medical and dental students, while supporting our researchers, scientists and clinicians.

Student Support – Scholarships, Awards and Bursaries

Financial support for our students means that the best and brightest can have access to medical and dental education, no matter their financial situation. Scholarships, awards and bursaries can give a student much more than money. They can relieve financial stress, inspire and motivate, and provide new opportunities. Your support can change student experiences and futures, and is a special way for you to make a direct impact on a student's life.
