Royal Canadian Legion Masters Scholarship in Veteran Health Research

Canada provides our military with the best training and equipment in the world, but we must also ensure that these soldiers return home with ample supports in place as they potentially face a "new battlefield" of challenges. These challenges may include physical and mental injuries, or social challenges as Veterans reintegrate into family and community life. These support systems must be based on research evidence from the best and brightest Canada has to offer.

To this end, The Royal Canadian Legion is proud to offer this annual entrance scholarship to a Master’s level student specializing in research related to Veterans and their families.
