The CAPP Studentships program provides funding for undergraduate and health professional students to complete summer research projects related to psoriatic diseases under the supervision of established investigators. This program encourages interest in psoriatic diseases among early career researchers, supports an environment that provides strong mentorship and contributes to general knowledge about psoriatic disease.
Applications are due in February of each year for research projects that will take place over the following summer. We encourage applications from across Canada that reflect four pillars of health research: biomedical, clinical, health systems and services and population health.
The CAPP Studentships program has been operating since 2016. We invite you to check out the research by previous recipients of CAPP Studentships.

This award is designed to help students present their research findings at national or international conferences. To request this funding, students must send a letter of request to along with confirmation of acceptance at any applicable conference.
