Future Trainees

Become a Trainee

Through undergraduate student research experience or summer studentships, ACHRI’s undergraduate students are provided with a unique opportunity to work alongside leading university researchers and experience the life of a researcher first-hand. 

  1. Get started: Secure Undergrad Research Experience

    Research at ACHRI is organized within Child Health and Wellness Programs

    Those interested in the undergraduate research experience in ACHRI should contact a potential supervisor directly and inquire about undergraduate studentship or summer studentship openings within the lab. Contact an ACHRI supervisor by visiting our Child Health and Wellness program directories:

  2. Apply for Funding

    Once a student secures a undergraduate studentship or summer studentship with an ACHRI member, they can apply for funding support from their supervisors, or from various programs on campus, including ACHRI Summer Studentship Awards. Undergraduate ACHRI trainees will also have  access to the summer student research program.

Students are accepted into a UCalgary graduate program based on their academic record, letters of recommendation and the agreement of a specific faculty member to supervise the student's training. While ACHRI does not offer a specific graduate program, we support graduate students that are involved in child health and wellness through a variety of competitive funding, educational and professional opportunities.
